Runway to Reality Part 1

As a stylist, I'm often quizzed by my clients about the relevance of the catwalk and how the looks that are shown on the runway relate to their everyday lives.


I must admit that at times, even I am at a loss to explain some of the designers' colourful creations!  But there is method amongst the apparent madness... 


Many catwalk looks are simply created to excite and inspire.  The bi-annual round of fashion shows allow designers to push the boundaries of their creativity, and the daring looks that often result can generate valuable media coverage for their brand.


The pieces that are subsequently put into production can be quite different, and this dramatic Alexander McQueen dress is a great example.
