Artist Illustrates the Paris Haute Couture Shows On Bits of Trash

Derelicte.

One man’s trash is another man’s alternative to waving a giant iPad in your face?

Apple products might be fashion’s favorite way of documenting a runway show, but artist/designer Charles Jeffrey is both innovative and a non-dickhead. Or maybe he just left his phone charger at home one day and only had a chip bag to make notes on  – whatever the logic behind his Microsoft Paint-meets-derelicte Haute Couture “reviews” drawn on various bits of trash, the results are awesome.

Our favorite has to be the Maison Martin Margiela on old receipts and squares of toilet paper, which adds yet another dimension to the design team’s exploration of collector’s item fabrics and junk drawer embellishments. Either that or we’re taking these (hopefully virgin) bits of bog roll far too seriously. And Chanel‘s trainers were evidently a crowd pleaser.

We do have some concerns about Jeffrey’s fashion week diet, but then ours weren’t that great either.
