The shock rock design duo The Blonds closed New York Fashion Week with hot vampires, embellished corsets and writhing dancers whipping their long ponytails on the runway Wednesday night.
Phillipe and David Blond, partners in life and their creative work, were thrilled to be back for their second pandemic-era physical show after going with Paris Hilton and a cabaret vibe last September. This time, to some heavy beats, they rolled out jogger togs, tight tops and party dresses with a touch of sparkle on a printed fabric based on their silver spike and studded corset once worn by Katy Perry and Rihanna.
The corset has become one of their signatures. A model wore a new generation of the piece in homage to their past, the two told The Associated Press backstage before the show.
But back to those dancers. The Blonds invited choreographer and dancer Parris Goebel to perform on the runway, in black leather leggings and matching corset. She was joined by two other dancers as the ponytailed trio snaked across the floor and strutted for the crowd, including Adam Lambert and Cardi B's sister, influencer Hennessy Carolina, on the front row.
The Blonds, who met 22 years ago at the old nightclub The Roxy and have been together ever since, went "macabre and goth and vamp" to end this fashion week, said David, the creative director. They were inspired by some of the films they love, including the superhero horror franchise "Blade," "Vamp," "The Matrix" and "Bram Stoker's Dracula."
