Models walk in upside-down, sideways and diagonal gowns at Paris Fashion Week, netizens call it a 'circus'
The Paris Fashion week saw some really quirky looks this year. Dutch designers Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren stole the show with their meme-worthy gown collection.
Models walked the ramp wearing gowns that were fashioned upside-down, sideways and even diagonally.
The dresses were worn at all sorts of imaginable angles.
One model had the bodice sticking up next to her head, with the skirt crossing her body.
Another wore the gown horizontally, with the bodice in front and the skirt in back. Her body was inserted into a hole in the middle.
Another model wore a gravity-defying dress that was completely upside-down. The model's face was completely covered with the dress, leaving people wondering how she walked without falling.
And if these were not enough, one of the dresses appeared to walk ahead of the model.
The fashion house described its collection as "a parade of dreamlike yet surrealist constructions."
After the show, Rolf Snoeren explained, "It’s an absurd take on the stereotype of a certain type of femininity – a classic silhouette from history, reinterpreted for today," Metro reported.
Here's what netizens said about the bizarre designs:
One user wrote, "Fashion week is becoming a circus." Another added, "Tell me you've run out of ideas without telling me you've run out of ideas."
A third user commented, "I think it's pretty apparent that these high fashion designers are completely out of new ideas or concepts... they either come up with stupid stuff like this or just recycle ideas from 20 years ago."
Yet another posted, "Lack of real inspiration and its result."
