Philip Treacy and Lady Gaga - London Fashion Week RTW Spring 2013
Lady Gaga introduced an homage to Michael Jackson as the opening entertainment to milliner Philip Treacy's Spring 2013 collection at London Fashion Week.
The last great instigators were Alexander McQueen and Isabella Blow, both close friends of Mr. Treacy’s. He dedicated the show to them, and to Michael Jackson.
Mr. Treacy had the crazy idea of pairing his millinery designs with costumes worn by Mr. Jackson, before those garments are sold in December at Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills. Michael Bush, who worked with Mr. Jackson for 25 years — first as a dresser, then as a costume designer — was in the front row, dressed in a glittery jacket.
Lady Gaga, veiled in hot-pink chiffon, was mistress of ceremonies. She is a friend and client of Mr. Treacy’s.
