Get runway-ready with Violet Chachki
Drag Race alum Violet Chachki has stepped up her YouTube game with a series called Runway Rewind. Add this to your list of things you didn’t know that you needed until you saw it. It’s genius.
The format is relatively straightforward – it’s basically, Violet and guest reacting to vintage fashion shows – but it really works.
The first two episodes focused on fashion in the 90s – Episode 1 was Chanel’s AW91 show, and Episode 2 was Todd Oldham’s SS95 show. Episode 3 takes us to John Galliano’s SS04 collection for Dior. Episode 4 gives us Gucci SS97, with Tom Ford at the helm.
Episode 5 takes us to the 2003 edition of the Victoria’s Secret fashion show – a style inspiration close to Naomi’s heart. While Episode 6 gives us the drama of Mugler SS92.
These runway reviews are an interesting glimpse back at the fashions and the different energy of shows from earlier eras compared to what we see today. It’s also a total super-model fest. – Linda, Naomi, Kate, Tyra – it’s pretty cool to see them in action, all working the runway.
Violet, Katya, and Naomi clearly know their stuff when it comes to fashion and style, and I could happily watch them reacting to and critiquing fashion from any era.
If there’s a CrowdFunding campaign to get Violet and her team live-reporting from the major Fashion Week events around the world, then that’s a cause I’m happy to contribute to.
