They had different physiques, faces and attitudes. They were my heroines and they were better than professional models. We did lots of different things and we had fun. It was their characters that cat walked today meaning they each brought something different to the clothes.The tight trousers, a bit like leggings, that we used to do in rubber, now we do in leather. I also made a dress but instead of having the bottom of the dress it’s actually a jumpsuit with this idea of lingerie which forms as frills and ruffles, so we did that to certain clothes to make them sexier. Then for the shoes there are some all in crystal. Beth Ditto:It was just a really emotional show, especially for music and for the queer culture. The idea that so much had happened. It’s not about being chic but being chic by accident.Music of the show (donot reuse for more than 7 days after the show)
