Alexander Fury: Fashion is about capturing a given moment, which is why it’s drawn to novelty models, like Conchita Wurst

Why? Because Wurst’s appearance on the catwalk was newsworthy. Alas, what I mean is, the fact that Wurst appeared at all, rather than what she was wearing made headlines. When you forgot Conchita – and the gothic hair and make-up that Morticia Addams-ed up most of the models – the collection wasn’t half bad. Actually, it was good. One of Gaultier’s best in a while. And yet, the image everywhere is Conchita. What a pity.

It highlights the general issue I have with novelty acts on catwalks: namely, that they overshadow the clothes. Gaultier is prone to it, which is odd, because he’s actually a great designer.
