What better way to get in the mood for the weekend than by watching styles by niche designers like Rick Owens, Vivienne Westwood, Ivan Grundahl, Henrik Vibskow, and Gareth Pugh walking down the runway being worn by androgynous models with grasshopper heads and checkered spandex body suits? Only to be finished off with performing Queen extraordinaire, JoJo Baby lying down on the stage lifting her legs in the air and having two confetti cannons shoot from under her dress before her sidekick removes a toy baby? Well, this is exactly what happened at Bonnie & Clyde's fashion show titled "Birth of a Hybrid" as part of Style Series at Underground late last week.
Traditional roles definitely took the back seat at this show where creative identity and spectacle took front row, center. Amidst the crowd there were a ton of guests in experimental make up, bizarre hats, and gender-neutral clothing who had made their way to Underground after Art Chicago, Next, and Raw.
