Designer Hosts Fashion Show In Prison, Has Inmates Walk The Runway

0 comments

Those who tire of trekking all the way out to Pier 94 should quit their complaining. French designer Sakina M'sa recently held a runway show at a location more inconvenient than the waterfront: A women's prison in Fleury-Merogis, about half-an-hour south of Paris. She got 30 female prisoners to model her line for 90 other inmates in a kind of prequel to her couture collection that she'll be showing in Paris. We're imagining that security wouldn't allow for a full-on Gaga-esque "Telephone" scenario with caution-tape lingerie sets, coke-can hair-rollers, and high-cut briefs, but we're thinking that at the very least, those silver (hand)cuffs are quite trendy.
