Roving Reporter: Ann-Sofie Back

Boo! Did I scare you? If so, then you shouldn't look at one of the oversized jumpers Swedish designer Ann-Sofie Back rolled out this season, which had the three-letter word dripped across a model in a very bloody font.Although unexpected, it was appropriate for a show that found its theme in Halloween films such as Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The dreamweavers attached to tops and skirts were slightly harder to understand, but Back worked her theme well with zombie-eye contacts, Frankenstein-haired models and every pattern of jersey and denim slashing known to man.

Sound a bit overboard? The audience seemed into it, and everyone's extra treat came at the very end of the show. That was the first time I ever heard a designer end a show with the Ghostbusters theme, and assumably it'll be the last.
