London Fashion Week: Victim Spring 2009

At first we likened the Victim collection to Betsey Johnson but with an edgier, more punky feel but then, as the show went on, we saw an ever more appropriate analogy. Our colleague, Laura Street, who works on our sister site PopsugarUK, likened the girls we saw on the Victim runway to Japanese Lolita's and that, we thought, was right on the money. In one exit two girls emerged from behind the backstage walls, one, a typical teenage model, and the other, an actual child. From what we could tell the child's parents were sitting front row, smiling ear to ear at their daughter who was made up to look like some kind of circus burlesque creature. When Cyndi Lauper's "Girl's Just Want To Have Fun" came on to close the show, our mood admittedly lightened a bit. It was fun in the end, with all of the girls together in their outifts, but still left us feeling a bit, inappropriate.
