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?
