Philip Treacys Michael Jackson Show at London fashion week

After a thirteen year hiatus, the incomparable haute milliner Philip Treacy has returned to London Fashion Weekwith a bang and a little help from prior millinery intern Lady Gaga, an army of incredible African models and, fittingly enough, a sequinned-gloved hand from musical genius/ass hatMichael Jackson.

Looking every bit like a hot-pink mess, or a chiffon-swaddled infant child dangling from a balcony, Gags opened the show – which was dedicated to Treacy’s close friends, the late, great Alexander McQueen and his mentor andTreacy’s museIsabella Blow – with the declaration that Treacy is “the greatest milliner of all time”; a epithet he lived up to with a spectacular collection of hats and headpieces inspired by and paired with the actual archival stage costumes of Michael Jackson designed by Michael Bush and Dennis Tompkins.

In attendance were various European and fashion royals, including McQueen’s successor Sarah BurtonGareth PughDita Von TeeseKim CattrallTreacy’s most limber fanGrace Jones and Bryan Ferry, who all watched on as one of the most extravagant displays of camp not witnessed since the invention of camp took place. Predictably, onlookers hollered and danced to a quintessential Jackson soundtrack. Music! Hats! Fashion! I love you! Press play and scroll!

At this point I figured I should stop with all the hats – naïvely thinking I should edit out all the ‘unnecessary’ or ‘uninteresting’ ones. It was also at this point I realised such a point/hat does not exist! This isn’t the time for restraint – next!

  1. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of
    your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one
    or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
