Fashion can be as funky as it can be fickle.

For decades, many designers—like the late Manfred Thierry Mugler—have pushed boundaries with their styles. At his fall/winter 1995 couture show during Paris Fashion Week, supermodel Nadja Aermann channeled a bionic fembot, thanks to one of his futuristic creations.

You might also remember Gucci’s fall/winter 2018 Milan Fashion Week show, where models were seen walking the runway with a number of unusual accessories like a baby dragon figure, a snake or a replica of their severed head.

Alessandro Michele Gucci creative director stated, “We’re the Dr. Frankensteins of our lives” VogueAt the moment. There is a clearness about my actions. The space I wanted to represent the creative act was what I had in mind. The lab that I see in my mind was what I wanted to portray. It is physical work like that of a surgeon.

When showcasing fashion, sometimes it’s necessary to ignore the head to stay ahead of others. In 2020, the Paco Rabanne Ready to Wear spring/summer 2021 fashion show at Paris Fashion Week featured models wearing several styles that covered their entire faces.
