I am speechless...
This is why I love fashion:
John Galliano spun a tale of Japanese legends with his Spring 2007 haute couture collection, culminating in this tour de force of intricate silk-gazar origami.
Alexander McQueen (s/s 2005), Hussein (a/w 2000 - the wooden table look), Rei Kawakubo (a/w 2008) and Viktor & Rolf (a/w 2003)
Alexander McQueen (s/s 2005), Yohji Yamamoto (a/w 2000) and John Galliano for Dior (haute couture spring 2003).
For spring 2005, Issey Miyake created a concertina of his signature pleats - a cross between Isamu Noguchi's paper lamps and a flying saucer - which constrict and expand with each stride.
Fantasies of sexual fetishes have permeated Gareth Pugh's creative flow from his first foray on to the catwalk for spring/summer 2006.
The ultimate fantasist, Hussein Chalayan takes inspiration from the past, the future and the dreams in between. This compressed tulle gown, from spring 200, charmed and bewitched.
Maestros of astonishing - and often implausible - fashion, Viktor and Rolf generated a bizarre band of subversive creatures of beauty for spring/summer 2006.
Hussein Chalayan's unyielding remote-control aeroplane dress, created in 1999, is a playful image of the future.
Gareth Pugh's fringed dress for autumn/winter 2006 was gloriously perverse.
In spring 2003, Galliano weaved high-octane stories out of his visions, such as this dancing collage of tinsel and giant sequins.
Thierry Mugler's paper concertina dress for spring/summer 1991 exudes the distinctive mix of wit and drama he brought to the catwalk of the Nineties.UK Vogue
