Paris Fashion Week: Gareth Pugh Spring / Summer 2010
A cool mix of Star Wars meets goth with androgynous models whose faces were painted in pale gray and eyes lined in red
Paris Fashion Week kicked off last week and I was delighted to see one of the hottest and most coveted spring summer 2010 shows from the designer Gareth Pugh.
Gareth Pugh is a young, bold designer coming into his own who was a protege of the uber edgy Rick Owens, the American designer living in Paris .
The show was a cool mix of Star Wars meets goth with androgynous models whose faces were painted in pale gray and eyes lined in red.

The Cher- like feather head dresses and the outrageous platform shoes and boots gave a surreal look to the collection. However underneath all the pomp and circumstance there were beautifully and intricately crafted pieces that were surprisingly wearable.

I lingered after the show to gawk at the crowd which was just as interesting as the show. Rhianna attended the show but I was disappointed I didn’t spot her but there certainly were enough audience pleasers to share with you… here are some photos of the incredible finale and my commentary captions about the crowd. — Richard, the Paris Insider
