Philip Treacy Captures a Moment in History in London Fashion Week Comeback

Dedicated to the late Isabella Blow, Alexander McQueen and Michael Jackson, tonight’s Philip Treacy show at the Royal Court of Justice, presented by Swarovski, was a moment that will live in the fashion memoirs for years to come.

An extremely emotional presentation culminating with a live gospal choir featured otherworldly headpieces created specifically to complement Michael Jackson’s iconic show wardrobe on show as a world exclusive before it goes to auction on 2nd December in Beverly Hills.

Swarovski crystals were used extensively on both the headpieces and clothes, making the whole effect even more thrilling, in fitting with a spectacularly star-studded list of attendees and a true fashion moment.
