Anyone who knows me knows I'm a huge fan of Gareth Pugh. When I saw his collection for Spring/Summer 2009, I instantly thought of eccentric performer Klaus Nomi. In fact, Jean Paul Gaultier's Couture show for Spring 2009 was influenced by Klaus Nomi as well. It's funny when there's a certain feeling going on in the world of fashion, that the designers seem to pick up on. I guess that's how trends are born.
