Fashion Week may set the trends… but not everything shown on the runways is likely to catch on.
Throughout September, designers have taken to the catwalks of New York, Milan, London and Paris to dazzle and wow spectators.
Yet again, this season has pushed the boundaries of what we call ‘fashion’, from dresses created out of plaited hair to condom gloves, designs have tested the limits of insane style.
Other designs included huge fur boots that purposely sent models tripping head over heels in Milan, whilst in London Christopher Kane experimented with cross sections of human anatomy.
Here FEMAIL has selected 10 of the most outrageous outfits across the whole fashion month…
Hairy situation: Victor Weisanto caused a stir as he opened womenswear spring-summer 2023 at Paris Fashion Week. His collection featured almost transparent jumpsuits and dresses. The 28-year-old designer’s most daring outfit was created out of plaited hair and a piece of sheer fabric

Proving fashion is fun: Always one to push the boundaries, Moschino did fail on the wacky front with its childish inflatable and cartoon-esque designs at Milan Fashion Week

Undressed: Performers during the Christian Dior show at Paris Fashion Week stole the show as the challenge the concept of fashion through naked outfits
