 If there was ever any question if fashion was an art form... well this should clinch your reply as YES IT IS!

To my eye this is a celebration of design, craft, art, skill and technology but as far as selling clothes, I am not convinced. There is no doubt that this would be called a “collector’s edition” for only those who afford what has been offered. Most of what has been shown is close to museum worthy and some of it... well not so much.

What comes to mind are the words of the late Mr. McQueen who said ...  Clothes and jewellery should be startling, individual. When you see a woman in my clothes, you want to know more about them. To me, that is what distinguishes good designers from bad designers and words to this effect... in order to break the rules, you must learn the rules... never has it been more evident than in the hands of his most adept and creatively blessed heir to the throne.
