Fashion is a fickle mistress, just when we think we’re understanding trends and what works well together some designer puts together a collection that essentially promotes men foregoing underwear in public. I tend to think of fashion shows as a sort of interactive mood board, a kind of high-end concept art for other designers and fashionistas to take note from. But sometimes, I just don’t know what the concept is, designers pull something out that is wonderfully bizarre and we all scratch our heads in unison. So let’s celebrate some of the weirdest, scariest and ridiculous things that have taken centre stage at fashion shows over the years with our top ten strangest things ever seen at a fashion show.
