He’s said to be Lady Gaga’s favourite designer, we wonder why.
Charlie Le Mindu is no doubt a talented designer and has made a name for himself especially for his unusual approach to millinery.
His recent Paris Couture show featured various creations that got people talking. There was totem mask with two baby faces top and bottom and a blonde hair hat. There was a hamburger hat crafted from what looked like blonde Afro hair and a bizarre horned headdress.

According to the DailyMail, Le Mindu has caused controversy in the past, most recently when he sent completely naked models down the catwalk during a London Fashion Week show.
