German Designer Glues Models’ Mouths Shut

Share Button

After sending models down the runway in fake beards and bald caps last season, and buck teeth, fright wigs, and thongs the season before that, German designer Patrick Mohr’s reputation as a fashion provocateur was pretty much sealed. Now he’s gone and outdone himself, gluing his model’s lips shut and plastering over their eyebrows.

As you might expect, the focus of the show became the distressing political statement (assuming it was one), with nary a write-up of the actual clothes. Mohr has been using this and other attention-grabbing techniques designed to shock audiences for quite some time, to mixed reviews. One thing’s certain–we can’t wait to be disturbed again.
