Chanel SS15

Karl Lagerfeld held a street protest in honour of feminism for Chanel’s SS15 show.

8 of the most iconic catwalk moments in history

Fashion shows have always been a headline-hitting affair.

We’ve had supermodels dancing down the catwalk, Madonna baring all for her friend Jean Paul Gaultier and Kate Moss defying all the rules and lighting up mid-walk.

Take a look through the history books and check out the most breathtaking (or shocking) moments from the Fashion Week catwalks.
