    The state of the catwalk thread in this forum got me thinking about the quirky nature of it all.

    Fashion Television (Canada) airs a wonderful segment on how various designers take their bows at the end of the show. Some, like Miuccia Prada, barely peek out at the audience while others, like John Galliano, gallantly stride with flair.

    The RealPlayer footage is available on the Fashion Television website here: http://www.fashiontelevision.com/episodes/06_2003/#.

    Pretty funny stuff. I love how A.L.T. describes Valentino as a "Roman Senator."

    Who do you think got the loudest applause for their collection at a bow?

    Yohji got a standing ovation at his S/S '03 collection. :woot: Much deserved. :flower:

    That's a fantastic photo of Yohiji, ignitioned32. As for loudest applause, I'm not sure. One of my favorite designer reactions was Ralph Rucci's at A/W 2002 HC.

    The look on his face is one of appreciation for being invited and a sense of arrival after 25+ years in the business.

    For a totally different reason, I'll always remember Versace S/S RTW 1998.

    That's very true, Atelier. :flower: People were really happy for Rucci in his couture debut during the Fall 2002 HC season because it was the first time in around 50 years that an American designer on his own dime was invited and showed couture in Paris, since Mainbocher.

    Another big applause were John Galliano during his S/S '03 show :woot: :heart: and Marc Jacobs during his S/S '02 show. :flower:

    i watched that video. thanx for the link. it was great. i liked how they talked about everyone, not insulting or anything. i didn't like the part about julie verhoeven, designer of Gibo. some ppl love the runway and really want to go out onto it. why does everyone have to be like her? i just think that the comment should have been kept to herself. let ppl be who they are. don't they let her alone?

    Actually, I think it's a great comment on her part. I would think that the designers would want the memory to be the clothes, not themselves. :flower:

    i dont really like his stuff too much.
    i just think there's too much going on and it doesnt really come out tasteful.
    well, to each his own! :)

    I swear that John looked better than all his models put together when he turned up as a kind of Tango-Matteador for his Flamenco inspired collection...
