Something to remember. Dior Haute Couture S/S 2011

Galliano’s final Haute Couture collection for House of Dior, memorable Haute Couture S/S 2011. This is DIOR I will always miss! Theatrical, creative, edgy, sometimes shocking and diverse! But always so recognisable!

How different was Dior in the times of John Galliano. It was pure art!!!! Galliano is truly an extraordinary person and his every collection was like a performance with a story behind it. Even after the anti-Semitic scandal I still love John as designer. He and Alexander McQueen are my true fashion geniuses.

And with the Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2014 Fashion Week (especially after what Raf Simons created for Dior this time) the first thing I realised is that now the House of Dior is definitely less dramatic and theatrical and it seems that Raf is not creating anything new but interpreting old Dior’s collections. Much more I enjoyed Bill Gaytten’s work for Dior. But honestly, oh God, I miss Galliano’s creativity!!!

And….10 years ago in mid January Galliano presented his Haute Couture S/S 2004 collection for Dior. Truly breathtaking collection inspired by ancient Egyptian culture. There are a lot of corsets, golden colour, crazy make-up! This is what I want to see in Haute Couture collections: crazy/dramatic/jaw-dropping/uuuunforgettable!!! ┬áLove love love!!!
