The wild 60’s, 1965 to be exact, finds us at The Avengers inspired collection and runway show. Jean Varon’s creations are heavily influenced by the popular British TV show and all kinds of craziness unfolds. Models throwing men down the runway, poodles modeling hats and modesty pants, and one model decides to take her outfit off entirely all in a swinging London evening! Mrs. Peel what have you done? Steed has a ringside seat and likes what he sees.
