A bientôt Monsieur Pugh!

Gareth Gets Down

In the midst of our Future Tense project celebrating new fashion talent, it seems apt to bid farewell (or rather bon voyage) to one of London's brightest stars of recent years. On Sunday night, our own Fashion DJs fave Richard Mortimer played host to Gareth Pugh's goodbye bash at his monthly Ponystep party. Pugh, London's favourite enfant terrible, agent provocateur and a whole host of excessive fashion Franglais all translating as exciting new talent, is upping sticks and skipping across le manche to show in Paris from S/S 2009. After the sophisticated polish of his last show it was only a matter of time, although the not-insignificant cash injection offered by his recent ANDAM win certainly hurried along matters. Pugh was in jubliant mood, spinning a rather unique selection along with a little help from his friends (Hanna Hanra and Matthew Stone, that is) into the wee small hours. We wait with breath that is baited for Paris Fashion Week, and for quite what Gareth will do next...

    And let's hope they won't tame such energetic and beautifully fantastic creativity !
