Meadham Kirchhoff show at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, photographed by Eleanor Hardwick, who said of the designers:
“Meadham Kirchhoff stand stronger than nearly all designers to me. Their process seems so close to the mind of a teenage girl’s … the dark gothic, the girly sweetness, the wild and vibrant, and the subtly regal. They make you feel like you can be the girl in the show, not an intangible, imaginary, over-sexualized woman. They embrace adolescence, when nearly everyone else either looks past it or down on it. It’s about female power, youth culture, and standing up for yourself—but the best thing is, they don’t take it too seriously either. They make you remember that fashion is about expression, experimentation, and above all, getting dressed literally for the fun and creativity of it. The question is, why not wear as much glitter and color and fluff and frills as you possibly can every day? It certainly puts an extra bounce in my walk.”

This is one of the best things I have ever seen.
