Tao Kurihara of TAO showed her Spring 2009 version of a Scottish Bagpiper and a clown’s spawn would look like in the world of fashion. With details like the knee socks worn by bagpipers to exaggerated peter pan collars made famous by vintage clowns, this was truly an original show. When a collection is too original, often times it deems itself as unwearable in everyday life. This collection disproves that theory. Minus the hats, these looks are wearable, unique and chic. Tao’s creative risks have paid off in a great way. Bravo!
