Anorak | Couture Shock

Couture Shock

‘THE only fashion show that we here at Anorak have ever attended was five years ago for the launch of our celebrated Comfi-Slax range.

‘Come on, number five! You can do it!’

Some of the biggest or at least longest names in fashion descended on Anorak Towers that day to see the parade of models clad only in our now trademark 100% flame retardant fabric.

The Pomagne flowed, we scoffed cheese and pineapple chunks by the lorryload and it wasn’t long before the queue for the staff toilet stretched out onto the street.

But, apart from that, we have never been tempted to park our well-cushioned derrieres on a front-row seat in Paris, Milan or New York.

In fact, we admit that we are quite baffled by the appeal of these catwalk shows.

There in OK! this week is a picture of Gwyneth Paltrow clapping her macrobiotic heart out, looking for all the world as if she is at a football match or has front-row seats for a world heavyweight bout.

But she’s not she is, the caption informs us, at her pal Stella McCartney’s spring/summer 2005 show in Paris.

Now, we could understand the excitement if they added a touch of competition to these shows.
