Simon Doonan thinks Fashion Week has turned "Mardi Gras".

The creative ambassador-at-large of Barney's New York sat down to talk to Fern Mallis as part of the promotional tour for his new book Asylum. During his interview at the Big Apple's 92Y Simon shared his opinion on the bi-annual festivities.

He believes the carnival approach to shows have made people forget the true meaning of the event.

"Fashion week has gone to this mad Mardi Gras, whirligig, hook-line-and-sideshow, [that] you don't quite know why people are there. People have lost sight of the fact that it is in fact a trade show," he told the audience. "What we're seeing are clothes that will be available - maybe - if a buyer buys them four, five or six months from now. I guess it gets people excited about the general idea about fashion and maybe they go shopping - maybe they go out and buy something - I hope to Christ they do!"

Although he complained about the exaggerated atmosphere, one brand whose over-the-top shows Simon does appreciate is Thom Browne. The designer gave his latest Spring/Summer 14 catwalks an asylum theme and styled his models to have white powdered faces, smudged red lipstick and backcombed hair sprayed grey and white.

"Cut to Thom Browne - his shows are so extraordinary and so insane. God bless Thom, because it's good to have that in American fashion. If people are going to come to his show, he's going to give them a show," Simon raved.
