There was a sense of wholesomeness in the air on Sunday 19th September, the Pope
was touring, meeting and greeting fans, people camped overnight to catch a glimpse of him, whilst that was going on I was rushing to my first morning show – Charlie le Mindu (which has be the most talked about show of the season so far).
Charlie started out as a hairdresser at a very young age, he has always loved the concept of a glamorous and eccentric lifestyle and today’s show was exactly that. The pink pony skin two pieces was the only wearable outfits (unless you’re happy to walk round naked) -the rest of the show was completely theatrical and IDOL loved it. Some of the models wore full length dress made from human hair and whilst others wore nothing. And when I say nothing I mean they wore the same as I do, when I shower. It is shows like this that put London Fashion Week one step ahead of the others (Milan, Paris & New York). In those fashion cities this type of show would have been completely misunderstood but here it fitted right in. The show was completely scandalous and thank goodness, so far this Fashion Week was lacking spirit and Charlie put the individuality back into London Fashion Week. This was the type of fashion show that would make Lady Gaga blush.
