I think there is beauty in everything. What 'normal' people would perceive as ugly, I can usually see something of beauty in it, said the late Alexander McQueen, head designer of the fashion house of his namesake.
McQueen was one of the most iconic and brilliant designers to have ever lived; and yet his main muse was the grotesque. McQueen was fascinated by death and many of his pieces symbolized this dark interest, like cut flowers and black birds. The exhibit in his honor at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, titled Savage Beauty, housed an entire collection of his dark, twisted fantasies.
McQueen alone does not hold this mindset; many designers are enthralled by the perverse, or even just the odd. Fashion has always been about pushing the boundaries, crossing the line between acceptable and appalling.
It is this daring honesty and bold prowess that attracts so many to fashion. The clothes speak volumes that the personage can echo.
So designers create fantastic installments that one could only dream of. Monster clawed hands, hats made of dolls and fruit, and fetishistic full-face masks are far from orthodox.
Here is a look at some of the oddest runway moments captured in photos.
