Gareth Pugh is an uber-talented 27-yr-old British Designer whose runway shows take the route of performance art rather than a platform for showing fashion that’s actually wearable. One of his signature styles is using bubble-type structures to accentuate the effects of limbs and joints in his designs. Due to the outrageous nature of his pieces, his work has been embraced by progressive ‘zines like Dazed & Confused and V Magazine. Other boundary-pushing musical artists like Lady Gaga and Roisin Murphy have supported Pugh’s designs, but still, his distorted, alien-like manipulations are a hard sell. So it’s still indefinite as to whether this esoteric talent will tone down his creations to the point where reasonably adventurous fashionistas can actually wear his work.
