Backstage at Gareth Pugh Palais de Tokyo was Gareth Pugh’s venue of choice for his S/S10 Paris Week Fashion Show and I was lucky enough to go backstage. Within minutes of arriving rehearsals had started and a cloud of blue smoke filled the room as if a beautiful indoor sky was appearing before my eyes. Models strolled around the eerie industrial setting faces painted blue with hair tightly pulled back into messy plaits; wearing the most incredible blue wedges. Front row seats were reserved for Rihanna, Mario Testino, Grace Collington, Pam Hogg and Jeffererson Hack. The atmosphere was set for an incredible show. Gareth Pugh has always been known for his signature palette of black and white and his brilliantly outrageous creations. So the shock came when this season show was a flurry of greys and soft blues, however the strong aesthetic remained. Stylist Katy Shillingford did Gareth proud with her incredible styling. Hair, make-up, music and lighting were staged to perfection. Slashed full length gowns, loose knitwear pleats and ribbons showed Gareth’s softer side and well and truly turned the tables on the 400 hundred strong audience, who I have no doubt were expecting the usual Goth vibe. The show was a huge success – even running over half an hour late. By Victoria Aitchison
