Much Ado About Fash­ion

If fash­ion is all about mak­ing a state­ment, these shows were a the toast of the cou­turi­ers with ei­ther con­tro­versy or un­pre­dictable themes steal­ing the show. Jean Paul Gaultier - The French de­signer paid a trib­ute to Amy Wine­house at the Paris Cou­ture Week with a cat­walk show. The mod­els were dressed to em­u­late the late singer com­plete with the winged eye­liner, the trade­mark bee­hive hair and sported an oc­ca­sional cig­a­rette. But this sen­ti­ment was not re­spected by crit­ics and her fam­ily who found the ges­ture to be in very poor taste. Givenchy - The la­bel left be­hind the dainty pinks and pretty pearls for some­thing more spunky. Tak­ing bas­ket­ball as the theme Ric­cardo Tisci mixed raw cou­ture with del­i­cate em­broi­dery and gave a fin­ish­ing touch with heavy zips and studs.
