Day 4 of the World Mastercard Fashion Week and we’re almost too exhausted to chew a bite of pizza. But my long time friend Rebecca – Creative Director of Poster Child Magazine was scheduled to be in town for the shows so I womaned up, and got dressed for the Farley Chatto and Rudsak shows.
We arrived at the tents and it was filled with fashion kids wearing their valuable fur jackets, vests, and whatever type of fur item they can get their fancy hands on. And there I was in the middle of it, having never owned real fur in my life (not for the lack of desire) I didn’t dare wear faux fur to the show. I thought, what insult that would be to the designer! So I opted for faux leather and whatever my white Zara oversized blazer is made of. Probably mixed polyester – whatever people IRL wear.
To make this short (because I know you want to see photos – mainly of Paul Mason looking like a handsome and chic trapper), the show was breath taking. Chatto’s inspiration was the opulence and elegance of the Romanov family. With colours and richness that make us want to watch Keira Knightly in Tolstoy’s Ana Karenina again. Chatto bombarded our senses with lavishness, artistry, and beauty. He really made us wish we were rich.
During the show, we noticed the economic order in which the models walked. Stacey McKenzie opened the show (obvs) I guess dressed as a rich civilian and right behind her were models dressed in garbs that resemble farmers and bakers (really pretty and rich farmers and bakers). After them was our sweetheart Paul Mason (we love him, can you tell?) dressed as some kind of a extremely handsome trapper man (the only thing he’ll trap is your heart). The procession continued with models in military garb (fur trimmed of course), and then diplomats. And then two beautiful angel models closed the show wearing lavish white gowns and fur capes – I assume they were supposed to be the princess and the queen?
This show definitely made my top 5! The caviar and creme brulee at the after party had nothing to do with it.
