John Galliano Fall 2011


The situation that has unfolded in the last two weeks has had quite an effect on this years Paris Fashion Week. It’s a shame that the controversy surrounding the dismissal of Galliano has overshadowed what could have been a beautiful runway show. Instead it was showcased as a presentation with Adele’s Rolling in the Deep and Coldplays Viva La Vida playing in the background.

There was an elegant 40’s glamour feel to this collection, with fur coats, bespoke hats, flowy silk dresses, incredible bead work and beautiful tailored pieces which rounded out the presentation.

I don’t condone Galliano’s actions or those despicable things he said, and it sort of bothers me that someone so talented could throw it all away because of hate and ignorance. The future of John Galliano’s eponymous line is definitely in limbo; for all we know, this could be his final collection.

      I suppose it’s the new, new. He’s done it so well too. You should look him up, and read about the controversy.
