Naked models down the catwalk at London fashion week
London fashion week finished and will be remembered with the defile of naked models and the more conventional show of Burberry collection.
The wig maker Charlie Le Mindu decided to spice up the already eccentric London Fashion Week by sending some of his models down the catwalk without clothes, only in hot pink high-heeled boots, hats, bags and wigs.
The 24-year-old designer, whose creations are worn by Lady Gaga, launched his label just an year ago but has managed to grab plenty of headlines. He produced wigs in the shape of the Eiffel Tower. At the fashion Week last year he showed a headdress made of real mice and rat carcasses.
His latest creations are also not very practical, one of them a bizarre leopard-print teddy bear headdress, covering the model’s entire face.
Born in deepest rural France, Charlie Le Mindu studied hairdressing at Vidal Sassoon and Toni & Guy before turning to wigs and opening a studio in trendy Shoreditch in East London where he is now based.
Asked if he was worried about the public's reaction, he replied: "It's better to make them (the rodents) beautiful than give them to the snakes."
