Shows became of interest not just for the clothes on the catwalk, but for the often extravagant hairstyles and make-up created especially for each event by leading stylists – including such names as Trevor Sorbie and James Brown, famous for his professional relationship with model Kate Moss. The new trends in hair became part of the coverage expected from the shows. The fashion and beauty pages of the glossy magazines are now given over to catwalk style after each round of runway shows is over.

This meant, of course, the liberal use of whatever hair creams were currently available. Today, the selling of such products to men of all ages is taken for granted but it was Valentino who paved the way, even if the many who tried to copy his style were criticised and nicknamed ‘Vaselinos’. Women were already modelling their own looks on their favourite stars; Valentino was the first male star to act as inspiration and certainly not the last. Louise Brooks: the Iconic Bob 1929 Film star Louise Brooks was once cited by Anna Wintour, editor of American Vogue, as the inspiration for her own trademark bob.

There was no publicity. But as couture customers decreased radically in number after the 1960s, the well-known design houses became more competitive. Publicity was vital and the catwalk shows became larger and increasingly more spectacular. By the 1980s there was also a growing public interest in luxury brands and a new awareness of ‘high fashion’. Media coverage has increased across the subsequent decades, as the invited celebrities now seated on fashion’s famous ‘front rows’ ensure the attentions of the paparazzi.
