Over the years I've collected a photo album of my favourite non-wearable art. Garments, shoes or head pieces that are made of tyres, feathers, paper, gold, butterflies, trash etc. I just love the brilliance of it all and I'd like to share some with you. Enjoy!
John Galliano: Some things in fashion are indisputable. The extraordinary talent of John Galliano is one of those things. In my opinion Galliano is crowned "king of flamboyance"...alongside Lacroix of course.
John Galliano for Dior 2003
Alexander McQueen: The weird and ultra bizarre world of Alexander McQueen. Although Galliano and Lacroix are kings of flamboyance, McQueen reigns in complexity and strangeness that no-one (again in my opinion) does better.
Christian Lacroix: The original king of flamboyance, sits on his throne beside Galliano.
Jean Paul Gaultier is another favourite, dazzling people with his whacky creations.
Haute Couture 2014
And just a few more I admire......

That's the end of this fun and colourful post. Designers must have so much fun creating these pieces. The hours, days of labour that go into them would be well worth it in the end.
