All you need is style: Stella McCartney provides a hit for Chloe
Thursday 16 October 1997
The collection was just as we expected: clothes for people like Stella. Lace dresses, cleavages, masculine tailoring and a lot of saucy cheek. It was the most relevant Chloe has been to fashionable young women for many a season.
McCartney's parents, Linda and Paul, watched as her collection was presented at the Opera Garnier. Linda, to whom the collection was dedicated, said: "I loved it all. I wanted every outfit."
At Alexander McQueen's second ready-to-wear collection for Givenchy, it was the dream team of Katy England and McQueen at their glorious best. The theme was country and western as Tammy Wynette and Dolly Parton have never seen it before.
Givenchy did well to renew McQueen's contract for another three to five years. His tailoring - seen with crystal sequin trouser suits, bustier dresses and his signature all-in-one trouser suit - reigned supreme. Although the styling was pure Eighties cowgirl, you won't have to look like a rancher to wear the clothes when they hit the stores next spring.
