Good pre-show light in here. A purple haze. Roxy loving a selfie moment. The lights down. Crowd applauds. They know what’s coming. They’re decked out in sequins, zips, faces painted with colour and conviction. Queue music. The first girl stomps in her thigh high sequined boots. Plaited manes of hair, multi-coloured like a distressed rainbow. My Little Pony. Studded biker leather jackets, back to front, embellished denim. Sequins so many sequins. A sequined bikini, well it is resort. Star spangled. Punk rock pop star off ya head underground party in the dungeon… Blood dripping from their lips. True Blood, a bit of a Fangtasia fantasia moment. Pam would approve. Barbed wire motifs sequined and slogans, God is cool, Eat pussy, Thanks for the bumps, Sex is in. Chains wrapped around the pelvis and thighs, like chastity belts. Then a sequined velour tracksuit thrown in for good measure. Post show Catherine Baba declared it a woman’s fashion week. Yes, so many female designers with attitude. Chicks man, chicks.
