VERSACE AUTUMN WINTER 1991
The spring-summer '18 Versace show wasn't the first to star '90s supermodels walking to George Michael's song 'Freedom! '90'. Gianni Versace's 1991 show brought all of the It-girls to the runway and sent Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, and Christy Turlington arm in arm down the runway, lip-synching to the famous lyrics. It was an instant sensation.
JEAN-PAUL GAULTIER 1992
Jean-Paul Gaultier's creations have been never been conservative. In 1992, he staged his first runway show in the US at a fundraising event for AmFAR. Madonna made an appearance on the runway, wearing a jumpsuit that bared her whole chest, stunning the audience and the entertainment industry shortly after.
JOHN GALLIANO SPRING 1992
John Galliano debuted his eponymous label at the end of the '80s and made a name for himself in the early '90s. His 1992 spring runway saw romantic silhouettes and bias-cut dresses, which were worn by supermodels such as Kate Moss and Helena Christensen.
THIERRY MUGLER SPRING 1992
Thierry Mugler is known for his over-the-top approach to fashion, but it was his spring 1992 show that caught everyone off-guard. The collection proved to be more about contraptions than clothing, whereby his creations were designed using sharp edges, leather and embellishment. The edgy collection also featured a bodice that was made to look like a motorcycle, which included side mirrors and handles.
CHANEL SPRING-SUMMER 1994
Karl Lagerfeld has always been an innovator, and in '94 he took to the streets for inspiration. The spring show saw models wearing oversized rapper's chains and baggy boy shorts that were held up by suspenders. Some models also skated down the runway in a pair of popular '90s skates that were covered in Chanel's logo, of course.
CHLOÉ SPRING SUMMER 1998
This show was Stella McCartney's first for the French fashion house. The designer made headlines for hiring her supermodel friends Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, and for having her musician father, Sir Paul McCartney, in the front row.
This come just three years after she hired the two supermodels for her Central St Martins degree show, a move she now regrets. "I look back on that moment and just feel a bit embarrassed that I was so naïve," McCartney said in an interview with the BBC.
YVES SAINT LAURENT HAUTE COUTURE 1999
Although Tom Ford had taken over designing Yves Saint Laurent's ready-to-wear line earlier that year, Saint Laurent himself was still crafting the designs for the label's haute couture collections. That's where he debuted this floral wedding dress, slightly unconventional don't you think?
