Fashion Week Internationale: Colombia

Hanging out at Colombia's two very different fashion weeks.
November 27, 2012, 12:30pm

We went to Medellin for Colombia Fashion Week – a city that's trying to shake off the gak residue that's been lingering on the brim of its nostrils since the 1980s by hosting a glamorous fashion week, something that doesn't make you think of cocaine whatsoever. We went to two different fashion week shows – one for the monied elite and one showing "real" Colombian fashion, full of huge asses and beautiful Latino women. Then presenter Charlet Duboc did some awkward modelling, learned how to pole dance and met Pablo Escobar's brother, which didn't do much towards forgetting about the blow thing again, but was a whole lot of fun.
