The Vice Series presents the not-so-glamorous side of Fashion Week in Colombia, in a documentary filled with piles of coke, plastic surgeries, and narco-beauties.
The Vice series presented this documentary as part of the “International Fashion Week,” aimed at moving away from the typical stereotypes of fashion in New York, London, Paris and Milan, while exploring lesser known fashion events around the world.
Hosted by model Charlet Duboc, the documentary shows the contrast between ‘Colombia Moda Fashion Week’ with Medellin’s alternative, more accessible fashion event, ‘Moda Para El Mundo’.
While models at fashion week typically feature the classic tall, skinny, high cheekbone fashion model standard, some aspects of the week have been taken over by the narco-culture. Narco-culture fashion tends to consist of plastic surgery enhanced rear-ends, boobs and faces. Then there are the narco-oddities such as runways decorated with a vast mountain of fake cocaine.
