But if you want my real opinion, the feeling I’ve had for the last few years is that the fashion industry has finally disappeared firmly and irretrievably up its own arse. It ceaselessly churns out ugly shit for ugly people and righteously defends its decision to feature models six times thinner than the original stick insect, Twiggy, to the point that the only thing that distinguishes the models from Holocaust victims is that they are being well paid to starve to death. When I see the banners for MSFW that hang around the city, I get the impression that the ugly shit from the early 90s is coming back in — But was it ever that good in the first place? The Supermodels, back in the day — Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington et al — were undeniably gorgeous women, of classic beauty — they even have muscles. It’s actually the women themselves who make the clothes look good.
