I used to sigh with disdain as friends talked passionately of Gareth Pugh and his ‘creative genius’. As far I was concerned, Mr.Pugh was nothing but an arbiter of style without substance a sensationalist non-art artist or something to that effect. Then I saw this at Nick Knights SHOWstudio exhibition and happily ate my words.
This visionary delight is of Pughs Autumn/Winter 09 collection; a creative collaboration with film maker Ruth Hogben which originally showcased at Paris Fashion Week. Put simply, it’s just beautiful.
