PERFORMANCE STUDY: THIERRY MUGLER HAUTE COUTURE 1999

 

YOU MIGHT NOT ALWAYS CONSIDER RUNWAY A PERFORMANCE, BUT THAT'S BECAUSE YOU DON'T ALWAYS GET A SHOW LIKE THIERRY MUGLER PUT ON IN 1999.

THIS IS MY FAVORITE RUNWAY SHOW.

I WAS A FRESHMAN IN HIGH SCHOOL WHEN THIS SHOW TOOK PLACE. I MOSTLY GRIMACE AT THE MEMORY OF WHAT WE WERE WEARING IN 1999, BUT ONE THING I LOVE IS THE EARLY 2000S NOD AT 1960S MOD VIBES. BUT THERE WAS THIS ELEMENT OF SPACE-AGED FUTURISM THAT I THINK LINGERED FROM THE 90S THAT WAS VERY UNLIKE THE RETRO-FUTURISM OF THE 1950S AND 60S.

YOU ALSO SEE SOME (HIGH FASHION) BURNING MAN LOOKS BEFORE THEY WERE BURNING MAN LOOKS.

I DIE.
