Julien Macdonald S/S 07 london
Julien Macdonald Gets The Glitzy Mojo Working

Godfrey Deeny
September 22nd, 2006 @ 4:52 PM Leave it to Julien Macdonald to end London Fashion Week with the one thing it’s lacked all season – glamorous excess.

For the final show of the week, Macdonald’s cult followers packed out the Hilton hotel ballroom, drawing pumped up fashionistas, It Gals Tara Palmer Tompkinson and Tamara Beckwith and the man who controls Formula One, Bernie Ecclestone.

Plus the designer threw a champagne reception before his show, so everyone was suitably ebullient. They were cheering from the get go, as the UK’s reining uber models Jacquetta Wheeler and Lily Cole strutted out, booming off an opening phalanx of silk sapphire looks – figure hugging suits, thigh revealing cocktails and hot pants worn with ladylike blouses.

Macdonald likes a big bold look, and accompanies this with a big bold soundtrack – helicopters, tigers and disco competed for attention.

Beautiful big-haired Barbie bitches – this was easily London’s strongest casting - sashayed out in white lycra swimsuits worn with fringed leather micro bolero. Metallic hued leather dominated – golden trench coats, silver western jackets.

Julien retains a sense of humor – and got a great burst of noise fror one humungous black male model wearing just micro underwear and shades. Staging three searchlights above the end of the runway turned up the heat further as it made most looks transparent.

Alec Wek looked sensational in a golden cocktail, other lassies emoted in mini dresses made of shards of Swarovski crystal. Macdonald is no fashion revolutionary, but no one does a hotter finale in Britain.

I actually like the one on Lily C., but the first two look like cheap Gucci knock offs

Well. it's not as gaudily ugly as I was expecting so I'm not too peturbed. But honestly, to have this show end LFW is jusst a miscalculation...... is that the last impression BFC want to be giving press and buyers? It stands out in LFW but not in a good way. The point is that LFW is not glitzy or glamourous and I personally like it that way.....

it's weird that Paris Hilton or PITA wasn't there to support the show.

I don't like Julien Macdonald. These are designs for people who dress for attention, rather than for themselves.
