Take a stroll through the hallways with the New York duo as they debut their AW15 lookbook and talk furries, cliques and re-enrolling as rule breakers.
“Furry subculture, medicine, hospitals, goth punk girls, vampires, Guro Lolita, ball-jointed dolls,” these are a few of design duo Ammerman Schlösberg's favourite things – at least for AW15. Treading deep within the dark side this season, black PVC boots were buckled high, stitching was zigzagged in Bride of Frankenstein fashion, fur was cuffed and purposed into pinstriped tails, and black hair was untamed.
Designer Gosha Rubchinskiy’s Autumn/Winter 2015 collection, which has been presented during PFW, at a Parisian protestant church combines two different youth subcultures; the retro 80s consumerism of the Italian youth that were known as Paninaro emerging from Milan, and the macho vibes of the Russian Nazbol an underground party created in the 90s.
Oh fashion week(s), we've watched North West throw a front row fit during many shows, we watched her mom Kim K go blonde and Chanel did breakfast in a cute little cafe set up, check it here.
Leave it to Paris Fashion Week to give us hype worthy fashion news and visually stunning collections. PFW is always my favorite to watch because you sometimes wake up to moments like this....

For anyone who has seen Zoolander, knows that this actual runway moment, in custom Valentino coats, shoes and suits, is an epic moment. It's been 14 years since the movie has come out and although it does make fun of models and the fashion industry, I believe it also brought awareness to the fashion industry. Ok, I don't know if that last part is true but I was in the 9th grade when this movie came out and I wanted to be in a mer-man commercial.
The best part about this impromptu cameo from Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson is that this is how they announce Zoolander 2. Strutting their stuff and giving the blue steel and le tigre look.
You won't see Anna Wintour leaning away from this one.
Our denim dreams come true. Faustine Steinmetz took her techniques to the next level in her quest to make everyday clothing special and elevate industrial pieces. Jeans came hand-felted and brushed with orange and white details to outline the stitching in a trompe l’oeil effect, or painted in silicone with thick, whipped strokes that were echoed in jewelry and hair pieces by Lara Jensen.
