Some of these could easily be wearable if you dress it down and wear your hair casual

Can't wait to see more!

I love that he's repeating the texture of the ruff for his dress (on Lily D.)!
and how the white suit (on Olga S.) looks like it was made of pixels...

I can't wait to see the entire collection!

interesting review by H Alexander.
It is outrageous no matter what but kudow for trying Gareth!
You never know, he might get a ticket with one of the big houses one day just because of his originality. I see these things differently. A show is just a show to me so it can be as crazy and unsellable as they want. As long as the showroom proposes more commercial pieces its all good

Potential buyers.




It's totally unwearable[], but ...special, like sculptures. That's about it.

I'm surprised at how many people's reviews don't go past the point of whether something would be considered 'wearable' by general standards. Is that all fashion is about? What about the artistic aspect,the visualization of a great mind's concepts and exciting silhouettes and design in general?

I think this collection is surely one to be applauded... he's showing an ability to really edit and some maturity in his point of view without losing his sense of self.

Wearability is subjective, I guess.

^That's right. As much as I wasn't keen on his collections, this one is quite admirable so far! I guess moving to Paris was a good step

I LOVE this - does it really matter if its wearable if it looks this fabulous on the runway!?

his whole collection isn't actually comprised solely of the crazy, freaky-*** sculptures he puts on the runway.... it's actually pretty wearable.
