The next Punk caller...

We have just been on the phone to our next punk caller, Edward EnninfulW Magazine's fashion and style director spoke with Lou Stoppard as part of our candid phone call series Punk: On the Runway. Stay tuned for Enninful's personal punk memory, which will be live very shortly. 

In the meantime, why don't you revisit some of our past punk callers? First up, we rang SHOWstudio alumnus Alex Fury. Not content with discussing a tribute to punk, Fury delved deeper to unpick punk's attitude, and the irreverence, boldness and excitement that went alongside the movement. For him, this attitude was visible well before the movement had even begun, in the pioneering, and highly controversial, New Look collection shown by Christian Dior in 1947.

Later on, we caught up with Lisa Armstrong, fashion editor of The Telegraph. Armstrong cited Liz Hurley's infamous safety pin dress, worn to the premiere of Four Weddings and a Funeral in 1994 as her favourite punk memory. Armstrong explained how this now iconic anti-fashion moment was punkish in both aesthetic and attitude - after all punk clothes were all about grabbing attention.

For a definitive runway moment Jessica Michault, NOWFASHION's editor-in-chief, picked the Autumn/Winter 1999 Christian Dior haute couture show. Set in Versailles on the turn of the millennium, with a water-filled runway as long as a football field, the show was the beginning of John Galliano's punk spell, and rocked the fashion world.
