Struggle between lightness and darkness

Hello fashionistas! So nice to meet you again, here on my personal blog. 
Today I will talk about one of my favorite designers. I am a big fan of Gareth Pugh and today I wear an interesting dress designed by him. What do you think about this dress? Fell free and comment. But before this, let’s see who is Pugh.

At 14, Pugh began working as a costume designer for the English National Youth Theatre. He started his fashion education at City of Sunderland College and finished his degree in Fashion Design at Central Saint Martins in 2003. He interned with Rick Owens in Paris. His final collection at St. Martins, which used balloons to accentuate models’ joints and limbs (a technique that would become one of his trademarks), attracted the attention of the senior fashion editor of Dazed & Confused magazine, who placed one of his designs on the magazine’s cover shortly thereafter. Pugh was selected to participate in British reality show The Fashion House two months after his graduation, which he would later call „horrible” and his „only other option [to being on] the dole.” The rise of !WOWOW!, a feature in Dazed & Confused, and a debut show at London club Kashpoint’s Alternative Fashion Week brought Pugh to the attention of Fashion East „London’s breeding ground for cutting-edge new talent,” leading them to invite Pugh to participate in its Autumn 2005 group show. Pugh had only four weeks, with no studio, no assistants, and little money, to create the collection. His collection ended up a critical success and attracted significant attention to his designs.
Pugh’s solo premiere was in London’s Fall 2006 fashion week; he has since showed his Spring 2007 and Autumn 2007 collections there. Pugh’s shows have continued to draw critical praise. British Vogue, for instance, called his Spring 2007 collection „an incredible, unmissable show” and said that „his genius is undeniable.” Anna Wintour is a notable supporter of Pugh’s designs.
Kylie Minogue has used many of Pugh’s designs over the recent years, most famously in her Showgirl – The Greatest Hits Tour and Showgirl – The Homecoming Tour. Róisín Murphy appeared flamboyantly sporting one of Pugh’s distinctive outfits in the videoclip promoting her 2007 album Overpowered, and on the cover of her single Let Me Know, and on other occasions. Minogue has been seen wearing the same dress in her 2008 video for her single In My Arms. Beyoncé wore Pugh at the MTV Europe Awards in 2008, and for her Diva video. Lady Gaga wore a jacket designed by Pugh at the Wango Tango concert 2009 and another piece on X Factor. Ashlee Simpson wore a leather and clear plastic striped Gareth Pugh dress in her video „Outta My Head.”

Style.com describes Pugh as the 
„latest addition to a long tradition of fashion-as-performance-art that stretches back through Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, and Vivienne Westwood to the eighties club culture of Leigh Bowery.”

    Rokia e interesanta , dar mi se pare greu de purtat. Oricum, cu picioarele astea, nici nu mai conteza ce pui pe tine!!!
    te felicit pentru atitudine si stil.

    Mie imi place doar partea de sus a rochiei.
    Eu insa nu as purta-o, dar tie iti vine bine.

    Oauu! Superbe haine! Si picioare. Atitudinea…Doamne, de ce unele femei simt nevoia sa pozeza sexi cu gura intreedeschisa?:))))) Pentru asta trebuie sa ai si buze si atitudine si o sexualitate care razbate din interior(gen Ghenea). Mai bine o atitudine normala decat una penibila. Numai bine, stimata doamna si sper sa aveti decenta sa lasati acest comentariu. (am scris anonim petru ca nu am cont in alta parte. Numele meu este Andrei Toca)

    Styletto : Cand nu are mecanismul atasat se poate purta foarte usor. Eu am fost cu ea normala la petrecerea Viva si a fost foarte apreciata. Umflata este doar pentru show si am vrut sa arat imaginatia acestui designer genial. Merci mult, pentru aprecieri.

    Anonim: Nu este o rochie usor de purtat umflata. Cred ca, daca ai vedea-o cum este fara tot acest mecanism ti s-ar parea foarte purtabila.

    Domnule Andrei Toca in primul rand multumec pentru complimente. In al 2-lea rand publicarea comentariilor nu tine de decenta mea, ci de cea a celui, care comenteaza. Toate comentariile se publica, atata timp cat nu sunt folosite cuvinte jignitoare (unele sunt excluse din start de platforma, daca setezi acest lucru). Sa inteleg ca dumneavoastra considerati, ca femeile, care nu au buzele lui Madalina Ghenea sau atitudinea ei trebuie sa pozeze normal? Adica cum? Drept si cu gura inchisa? Intr-adevar Madalina Ghenea este o femeie superba, pe care o admir, dar asta nu inseamna ca restul femeilor nu au sexualitatea lor. De-asta ne-a lasat Dumnezeu diferiti si nu exista asa da, asa nu, ci doar relatii bazate pe afinitati. In ceea ce ma priveste eu pozez cum ma inspira tinuta. Cand am o tinuta sport sar, rad, in altele stau serioasa, in altele pozez mai sexy (atat cat pot eu) si pana la urma este o tara libera; cui ii place se uita, cui nu nu. E adevarat ca si eu as da o lege ca toti barbatii, care nu au abdomenul lui Gerard Butler sa nu se mai dezbrace. 🙂 Pana una alta ii acceptam pe toti si intram in contact cu cei care ne plac.
