As a wigmaker,

it was certainly one way

to draw attention to his

model’s headwear.



Designer Charlie Le Mindu

broke the last taboo in the

fashion world yesterday by

sending models down the

catwalk stark naked.



The 24-year-old whose creations

are worn by Lady Gaga –

caused a stir at London Fashion Week

with a show featuring models clad in

hot pink high-heeled boots, hats,

bags, wigs…and little else.


In a scene reminiscent of

the Emperor’s New Clothes,

many of the assembled fashionistas

did not know where to look.



French-born Le Mindu,

his real name,

launched his label just a year ago

but has managed to grab plenty of


and not just for his outlandish

headgear which has included wigs

in the shape of the Eiffel Tower.



At last year’s Fashion Week,

he unveiled a full face headdress

made of real mice and rat carcasses,

outraging animal rights activists.



Asked if he was worried about

the public’s reaction,

he said:

‘It’s better to make them

(the rodents) beautiful than

give them to the snakes.’



His latest creations are not

the most practical with some,

including a bizarre leopard-print

teddy bear headdress,

covering the model’s entire face.



Born in deepest rural France,

he studied hairdressing at Vidal Sassoon

and Toni & Guy before turning to

wigs and opening a studio in trendy

Shoreditch in East London

where he is now based.



It is only his second

London Fashion Week,

although his show was not part

of the main event but staged

at a fringe venue.



On the show’s website he

described his interests as:

‘Stripers, Los Angeles,

pink cadillacs and Cher.’
