Junker: Those Who Can't Do Shock

Nothing suggests "absence of talent" quite like gratuitous profanity in an arena dedicated to beauty. The AP reports that the appropriately named fashion house "Junker Designs" (Averted Gaze, foillowed by an exaggerated cough suggesting feigned detachment) tried to get by on shock to compensate for their apparent lack of savoir faire. Fashionwire reports:


"A far cry from the clean white runways of Smashbox Studios in Culver City, Junker Designs pumped up the volume and unleashed a fashion show worthy of the phrase 'trashy lingerie' at Hollywood's Avalon on Friday night.

"Models came in all shapes and sizes, from a fiery vixen baring her gravity-defying breasts to rail thin, butt crack bearing boys in tight leather pants and hair-sprayed shags.

"Faces were squirted with what looked like black oil, and tattooed mohawked gals in pink mini-skirts and skintight white pants pranced down the club's stage and gyrated in front of members of the audience. Two female models spanked and wrestled each other, with one pulling on the other's G-string. One model in a red afro wig slurped on a lollipop the same shade. ACDC's 'Highway to Hell' blasted the room."

Would Tom Ford have needed these louche theatrics? Of course not. His work speaks for itself. Junker Designs uses the catwalk nfor distraction. Big gasface.

The chap is completely right, and there's no skepticism.
