Hey great clip! I’m glad the ‘chip shop’ model speaks up and defends herself!

Which TV show is this taken from? Not the ‘Woagn’ clip, but the other actual TV show?

Thanks again!

It’s taken from “Timeshift: Fashion versus the BBC” which was recently shown on BBC4 as part of the Style On Trial Season.

Alan Partridge perfectly took the piss out of this piece in the chatshow series.

I remember this being aired in the 80’s and being very angry; shame you can’t see it here, but Michael Clark danced onto the studio set, which was great. Sue lawley and Russel Harty were both tedious middle england bulley’s.

What revolting behaviour and what beautifully crafted clothes

Thank fuck for Janet Street Porter ……

I remember this, and Michael Clark appearing (unseen here). I think the fairy model is Sarah Stockbridge.

gee is this chat tv or ridicule tv?
I also ways thought chat show hosts would have to keep an open mind with things that seem different in this world, their cruelty to this designer shows their arrogance, and on top of that just makes them look down right rude

Really interesting, reveals the undercurrent poison and relentless bitterness of the British hierarchal mentality. Ridicual, humiliate and crush anything that deems to be alternative, alive and creative. We haven’t really changed much since this was broadcast. J Cretin Clarkson springs to mind as a prime example.

How grotesuely tawdry and d a t e d Lawley’s clothes now look in 2010…and V Westwood’s do not….
