The Couture side of life

Christian Dior

He awed us with his AMAZING collection for this Spring 200 couture.
He played with bold stricking, neon colours on duchesse satin and goes mad with amazing drapes and massive volumed skirts and dresses with added detailing such as multi-colour beading and sequins which are throwen all over the bottom of the dresses. For garnish, there were great plastic flowers, chunks of sparkle, and frissons of dangly paillettes as embroidery.

Lovely work and perfect detailing!!
Somehow, Galliano's primrose path of inspiration had, he said, wended its way from John Singer Sargent's Madame X through to the gilded swirls and bejeweled geometrics of Gustav Klimt. All that richness—plus the vibrant reds, magentas, yellows, purples, and limes—meant the collection teetered (atop vertiginous à la Japonaise platforms) on the brink of overload. Still, strange as it may seem, this was not one of Galliano's more manic excursions into fantasy costume. In the end, something in the odd air of high-society sixties hauteur came over as surprisingly chic.
