Someone who does resort to attention-grabbing tactics is Hussein Chalayan, I forgive him though because his clothes are always beautifully thought-out works of art. He really made model Lindsay Ellingson work for her money, showing how a fully operative solar-powered dress works. Okay that was a guess! His impressive clothes can seem daunting and unwearable, I for one was always baffled by his fame but I've come to realise that the outlandish clothes are a good way of broadening your fashion horizons.


His more conventional pieces are really beautiful and timeless and don't come with any moving parts, thank goodness. A nice thing I noticed is he seemed to have chosen models of a variety of sizes (for the catwalk!) and ethnicities, whilst its not exactly coming up with a formula for world peace it makes a change eh?
