Designers: John Galliano

John Galliano F/W 09

Spectacular makeup, imaginative hair (or pieces), and an over-the-top light show all add up to a John Galliano extravaganza for Winter 09. The designer already celebrated royal Orientalism at Dior, now he has gone folksy at a Ukrainian wedding, that morphed into a sensual Arabian night swirl. It all added up to a colourful, exuberant fashion romp that reaffirms Galliano's rich fantasy and creative energy. The challenge: how does this translate into real clothes?

Dior Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2009

Times may be tough out there, but trust John Galliano to deliver the fashion crowd a 'let them eat cake' moment. His couture collection for Summer 09 at Dior was a testament to couture opulence - rich materials such as silk, taffeta and brocade, and breathtaking embroidery were a real celebration of the coutourier's art. So who cares if the gowns were a bit on the costume side, we can all dream a little can't we?

Galliano Fall/Winter 2009 Men's Collection

Even the most jaded of the fashion crowd couldn't help but enjoy John Galliano's histrionic men's show in Paris on Friday. Held in an old train depot filled with thousands of candles, the models walked the glittering red runway dressed as pioneer soldiers and even satyrs. Fashion File was on hand to witness the models' wild transformations backstage, headed by legendary makeup artist Pat McGrath. Galliano showed a great collection and taught everyone a lesson that night: even when the times are tough you can still have a little fun.
