The Month of Fantasy... Super Hero Fashion

Jean Paul Gaultier's Spiderman inspired dress

Dior Couture's version of Wonder Woman (2001)

Thierry Mugler's Chimera dress inspired by X-Men body mutating (2003)

Gareth Pugh's Batman inspired dress (2007)

What's fantasy without cartoons, comics and "superheros". Every so often designers will dedicate a collection to the heroins who we have all come to adore and love. On March 6, 2010, the Orlando Regional History Center had an "Out of This World" Fashion Show, which Featured ADT Design Students and their Comic Book Superhero and Villain inspired garments. Celebrity Judges for the Event included, Chris Kirkpatrick (NSync), Sven Bode (Orlando Style Magazine), Ben Chmura (Season 7 Project Runway), Jesse LeNoir (Season 7 Project Runway), and (not-interviewed) Douglas Nesbitt. I lowkey love comic books and openly adore fashion, so anytime designers combines the two, I'm ecstatic. Remember these garments are not to be wore on the streets (unless your Lady GaGa), they are meant to imitate art.
