    I can only just barely manage to imagine the possiblity of visiting a place where people would not point and laugh their arses of at a person wearing any of these not on a catwalk.

    ^ I`m sure there`s people over there watching and laughing at some of the dresses.

    The only dress I can imagine being on the streets is #4. Even then it`s probably being worn by someone with no dress sense. Like how on earth did that fashion designer get away with that monstrosity.

    It`s couture, actually, which I suppose can be construed as a kind of art, or more specifically a luxury craft, and, no, these things are not ever meant to be worn anywhere except (not even photo shoots except for the event of the:) catwalk during fashion shows. That having been said, I liked the first one. The "kaleidescope of butterflies" (I know my collective nouns) hat!

    I wouldn`t want people who consider that to be art to tell me what`s fashionable.

    Ehh, it`s not like people actually wear this crap. Designers only do this so they can publicity for their brand, which is what is happening right now by putting this link up, lol.

    And Lauraly, I don`t think Milan is one of them... But I`m pretty sure that Rome is one of the major fashion capitals of the world, also with Tokyo, Paris, NYC, and I believe LA.

    All those GQs I`ve been reading has finally paid off, I guess. Lol

    Soro, you`ve not been reading enough GQs. Milan is one of the five main Fashion Capitals of the world.

    And I know art can be interpreted by everyone, and beauty is in the beholder`s eye, so the `art` on the show is individually defined.

    But seriously. Lobster?

    I`ve tried a billion times to see the art in this, once on a school trip to a museum of outsider art, there was this arist, and i asked her about what she had made and wat it was suppose to represent, and it didn`t make much sense...

    I`m a creative person and this sux...
    "art is just puzzle peices put to gether and its just a mather of time b4 they are all put together" well i suppose ppl have started to force the wrong pieces together :P

    Now the lobster is nice. haha Its cute, I couldnt see it being worn anywhere other than the catwalk except maybe a ritzy party near the beach (you wouldn`t believe what those ladies wear sometimes.) but it`s cute. Minus the squid? thing on her head. Is it a hat? Maybe.

    The bottom left, the black dress is ok. Kinda fluffy but it`s ok. I could see some goth kid wearing it to stand out if it didn`t cost about 50,000. (estimate)

    Some of them are pretty ugly but that flower dress, the 4th picture down, is the ugliest thing on there. Looking at it makes me sad.

    If you take away the cubes in picture number five, its actually a kinda cute outfit.
    And the black dress... I feel really bad for the stylist. It belongs in a Halloween costume catalog. And the others- especially number 4- just suck.

    I can honestly see people wearing the stuff in row 7 (the three girls, two in extra shiny almost body suits). Or maybe wearing ridiculous things to tick the school administrators off was something only my school did =/ I sometimes like to believe that we are the ones that came up with mini-skirts and leggings (technically would cover dress code because there was something on your legs, school had to change rules this year to squash that). Shiny body-suits are obviously the next reasonable thing!

    high fashion couture on the runway isnt supposed to be wearable it is supposed to wonderful and inspiring art. Sometimes it is beautiful, sometime sit is just strange but i think it is great. Italy inspires fashion for the rest of the world. it is pretty far ahead of the rest of the world in fashion It isnt meant for people to wear out on the streets and it really isnt mean for everyone to understand. other designers look at this for inspiration for the clothes that you all are wearing right now. The people who create this are so talented and creative. I love it and thik t is so inspirational. something like a flower on a certain color on one of those dresses could inspire a fashion trend for the next year. it is the basic ideas behind the clothes and what you can see in it beside what it really is, like a lobster on a dress, or an over the top hat.

    It`s basically the same thing with cars, except with somewhat less weirdness. And the model aren`t meant to be beautiful; that would distract viewers from focusing on the dress. Hey, I think that`s why these dress look so unusual, to focus our attention on them. Do I get the idea?
