Many are the runaways that give much to talk about. On the catwalks not only influences the clothes, also the stage or the theme in which they are.
Throughout the history of fashion, we have always seen designers more or less conflicted by their thinking, but nevertheless, the fact that they are designers with an aesthetic unusual have made it grow the sales of an amazing way.
One of the most striking fashion shows was the designer John Galliano for the luxury brand Dior: he talked about the vagabonds and the difference of classes between the rich and the poor. The parade was so shocking that people gathered in front of the Dior boutique to complain about it, saying they did not see fit. They shouted at least that Galliano must apologized.
This was confirmed by Cocó Chanel, who was horrified before that spectacle:
“Women do not have to dress aggressively or stupidly.”
It happened in the year 2000, just with the arrival of Galliano and was a before and after in the house Dior. Some applauded him for his bravery and creativity and others were astounded by the spectacle. In this way, Galliano managed to increase the sales of the house by 35%.
However, as we mentioned before in other blogs, John Galliano and his extravagance were left out of the Dior house for a controversial talk in a bar that you could see right here.
Another of the parades that gave much to talk about was the Spring / Summer of 2013, which starred Tom Ford under the control of the firm Yves Saint Lauren. Perhaps at first it went unnoticed, but later we realized that the models wore a pendant in the form of a penis. He did not understand it very well until Tom Ford explained that the necklines of the models represented the vagina. A detail that if we look closely, really does not go so far unnoticed.
Since then many have tried to approach sexuality in fashion, but without any success. However, designer Rick Owens got it with his men’s runaway, in which the models were dressed but without underwear, exposing his penis. As happened with Galliano, some were astonished and others, horrified.
In addition to sexuality, another topic that has generated much controversy is the history of the world in general. And more when it comes to tragedies that build the history of humanity, as is the example of the concentration camps at Auschwitz. The luxury firm Comme Des Garçons, based its runaway on the clothing worn by Jews in Nazi concentration camps. He claimed that no one on the team had ever realized this and apologized to all those who might have felt offended by the parade.
