Colombia Fashion Week 2011 and the search for perfect looks in Medellin.

Despite a slightly biased start and getting a large number of key facts wrong about Colombia Moda 2011, Fashion Week Internationale provides an interesting insight into the ever-growing Colombian trend of plastic surgery among young women looking to achieve perfect looks  in Medellin. In this episode Charlot Duboc heads to Medellin for Colombia Fashion Week. Formerly the old stomping ground of Pablo Escobar, the city is now trying to throw off its drugs legacy and push fashion up the noses of the world instead.

Medellin is also fast becoming the plastic surgery capital of South America; people are flying in from all over the world to sample the city’s budget body enhancement. We look at how the legacy of the narco-aesthetic inspired by the heady days of the Escobar era is being pushed out in favor of a more svelte European silhouette.

Along the journey, Escobar’s brother, Roberto, and Charlot tries her hand (and legs) at the national sport of pole dancing. We also find out just how far one woman will go to plump her buns.
