Does anybody know which show this was? I just saw it in the blog section of a hosiery manufacturer, but I am positive the tights are not even from them.
These are some really bold colours these boys are wearing! Based on the styling, I’d guess that these are designs inspired by some medieval decades when a man without stockings would be a man without any status.
This weekend I came to a fashion show and managed to see a little of it before I ventured backstage to help the girls with their outfits. If I manage to snatch a few more photos from that show of models in stockings from other photographers, I’ll post.
Fashion shows are very stressful and usually there are assistants to help with the outfits. If a model needs to quickly change from one outfit to another, she may not have a chance to attach the garter belt or to align the backseam.
I found this fun segment on Youtube. It looks like these models had a pantyhose fashion assignment! Which one of them will be the alpha hosiery model? Which one has the best imagination and legs to go with it?
Are these random shots of models who happen to wear pantyhose or is this really a fashion challenge? I am trying to find the full version of this video, so if anyone can help to locate this divine hosiery model material, I’ll be so grateful. There are some references online to this saying that Heidi Klum was one of the judges.
A native German speaker translated for me the two sentences that we hear the models say: “You may get used to these clothes…” and “I was glad that the body covered my butt cheeks”. He is pretty sure that it was an assignment to present pantyhose. Seriously, they have bikini contests, why not have hosiery contests?
Perhaps modeling pantyhose is a challenging assignment just because it is not a common garment to be shown off like that. Garter belts and stockings are so common that you can see them on any poster, but pantyhose, especially without a skirt, is a different topic because it is not as abundantly displayed. The job of a hosiery model is not easy since she needs to present a garment in an attractive way without looking vulgar or too suggestive.
