Glam rock, punk, post-punk, New Ro­man­tics, and even, all­out heavy me­tal—the trans­mu­ta­tions of rock through­out the decades were found across all four Fash­ion Weeks, salut­ing the in­creas­ingly dar­ing ex­pres­sions and trends in­spired so much by cul­ture and mu­sic. So many ref­er­ence points be­gan with glit­tery space boy Ziggy Star­dust. “David Bowie in­spired at least half of the tribes,” writes Luella Bart­ley in her Guide To English Style. “Ziggy Star­dust was the hero of the Glit­ter Rev­o­lu­tion; he made it okay for ev­ery­one to wear mas­cara.”

Edie Camp­bell girls took to the ra­zor-punk lin­ers and a dip in glit­ter, while at Burberry Pror­sum, mod­els shed­ded “glit­ter tears of hap­pi­ness”. Main­stay make-up cre­ative di­rec­tor Wendy Rowe demon­strated the ap­pli­ca­tion of sparkles on Edie Camp­bell: “The girls need to look quite strong,” she quips. “I cre­ated a dark eye with glit­ter tears, and a di­shev­elled worn-in eye with glit­ter scat­tered across the eye and cheek­bone.”

Across the room, hair mae­stro Sam McKnight put fin­ish­ing touches to the faux-mo­hawk shag. “I wanted a rock ’n’ roll vibe, sort of like rock­a­billy hair,” he says. “It’s a lit­tle dirty rock ’n’ roll ... hair that’s been slept in after the party, caught in the rain the morn­ing after, and left to dry on the jour­ney home.”
