You can tell when the designer feels that they've reached the pinnacle of their career when the models wearing their outfits have dead-behind-the-eyes expressions.
The models are just thinking 'oh well, at least they paid me for doing this'.

I've always been told that such ridiculous costumes are paraded to show off the technical skill of the designer using those materials. Which sounds ... reasonable.
But I can't help feeling that's just an excuse generated by people who can't admit that it's pretentious.

Having done several reviews of courses etc, it's down in the rubric as the reason you've been given. The primary audience is peer and academic.

There's this Balenciaga (?) scandal right now. Twitter suggests this is their fashion designer: Lotta Volkova1669748164124.png
