DIY Fashion at the Met?
Recently I made a corseted tartan number for Vivienne Westwood’s label to be shot for an American publication covering a story on Punk. Sorry! But the Americans just don’t get it! They think if it’s tartan then it’s Punk!
Saying this most of the stars who turned up for the red carpet event at the Met who were supposed to be celebrating the Punk culture did so in a very glamorous manner. More Peacock than Punk.
Personally I feel the only celeb who answered the brief was Madonna in a studded Tartan jacket & double fishnets with holes in. I guess it was a celebration of the impact that Punk has on haute couture and on designers such as Mc Queen Helmut Laing & John Galliano. Hardly DIY tho!
