Violet Chachki, the winner of season 7 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, closed the Moschino show on the runway in Milan the other day. Remember; it’s the menswear shows for fall/winter 2018 we’re watching. Ms Chachki wore a black tuxedo, with a ‘twist’. Jeremy Scott, designer for Moschino, named this garment the “tandem tux” because the tail was fixed to yet another model wearing the same jacket. Our best guess is that it was a female model: Violet looked rather manly. Don’t get us wrong here: we think she is always adorable!
In the early 1990s, the fashion world changed drastically; “Deconstruction” was born. Let’s watch this documentary toninght and get some insight. It is in German, sorry for that…… Anti Fashion; 2012 Directed by Olivier Nicklaus. Produced by Arte France, Lalala Productions.
“In the early 1990s, with the economic crisis, the first Gulf War and the devastation caused by AIDS, fashion reflected the times. It was sombre, desperate and sometimes violent. Clothing underwent deconstruction and recycling, and fashion shows became fashion performances. Fashion would never be the same again.-A riveting tale of interwoven destinies, recreating the feeling of an era, pulsating the energy of an epic novel.
A tale of creativity, money, egos, successes… and falls.”
