In that year, on the front page of the Daily Mirror, was published a photo depicting Kate Moss and her boyfriend, Pete Doherty, snorting cocaine. This episode led to the abandonment of the model on the part of the fashion industry. The British designer was the only one not wanting to give up in the presence of top model, use a hologram as fall/winter fashion show finale. The "ghost" of Kate Moss emerged from a cloud of smoke, whirling and dancing into the void covered by white cloth strips, becoming gradually smaller until risparire in the cloud.
