Did the Recession Kill the Runway Show?

"I mean I'm an 80's girl- I like a show to be a show."

Louise Wilson, Central Saint Martins

A post on "The Moment" New York Times' blog about Alexander de Betak, aka "Fellini of Fashion", reminded me that even though beautiful clothes are lovely to look at, the best part of any fashion week is the actual shows. In past seasons we enjoyed Hussein Chalayan's models making furniture into clothes, Galliano's Russian snow tunnel and just about any of the spectacular Dior runway shows. All of these are some of de Betak's masterpieces, and the list goes on.

My favorite of all time: Viktor & Rolf Spring 2005, Flowerbomb
