I love to cover fashion shows, because there's nothing better than seeing months of planning come to fruition. Being a photographer, I get one of the best seats in the house, so the splendor of the show is front and center for me. Also get to see the garments of clothing up close and usually it's not a problem, but this time it was. I cannot ever remember shooting a show and intensely listening to the verbal responses of the other photographers. It was literally unanimous as to the "oooing" and "ahhing" that I heard from others around me. People were so very taking by the garments Malan treated us to that night. His theme from the early to mid 20th century, was one that was chosen wisely and executed perfectly. From the music to the models, "supremo!!!" Mr Breton used a lot of black and I really mean a lot of black, in his line, but I never got tired of it nor thought that it was too bland. Mixing and matching leather, velvet, fur, fine cottons and even patent leather, was seamless. Women in trench-coats and neckties and tuxedos and double-breasted suits and of course mopping evening gowns was unreal. Black leather jackets with matching gloves, paired with skirts adorned with platinum flower designs. A golden floored-length high split dress, with a train that should have been carried by an assistant of the very stylish wearer. The gentlemen wore just as stunning array of clothing as the ladies. Whether it be the ever-fashionable leather trenchcoat or black derby and ascot or 3/4 sheepskin overcoats. But what completely stole the show, was his use of jodhpurs and knee-high boots. In keeping with the theme, the jodhpurs were absolutely the icing on the cake and put the whole clothing line into the realm of a very well thought out period-piece. I've seen hundreds of fashion shows, from all types of designers, but this one surely goes into my Hall of Fame.
