Wallpaper*: Fashion Week by numbers

I’ve been meaning to post this for ages. Well, since Fashion Week actually.

Wallpaper* magazine, that creative authority on all things design, dedicated their whole March issue to the fashion world. Hugely enjoyable it was too, but this double page spread was my favourite (click here for a larger, higher res version):

A few of my favourite highlights:

20: pounds of gold glitter dumped on John Galliano during his post-show bow

37: pairs of titanium heels trashed minutes before the Lanvin show when it was discovered the models couldn’t walk in them

100: %age of RTW on the Prada women’s runway made from cotton only

800: hand-painted feather butterflies on a single Alexander McQueen dress

1,930: pieces of metal (safety pins, grommets etc.) sewn onto one Balmain skirt
