Powerful red laser-lights and only the contours of a woman’s body were the start of Galliano’s fashion show. On the catwalk it seemed as if there were leaks of fire. Bubbles floated through the air and created a shady smoke-effect as they collapsed on the runway. These settings immediately set the mood for the rest of the show, which was a true visual spectacle. Galliano was said to be inspired by the very first Hollywood actresses from the time when movies were still silent. His models had classic white-powdered faces and small dark-red lips. Their heads were decorated with feathers, pieces of fabric, nets and bouquets.The clothes were a bit of a chaos but there were some good pieces as well. Thin dresses in romantic colors were matched with large jackets. They had prints of dots and flowers. A long white sequined dress with a shiny silver jacket looked exquisite. (Tess van Daelen)
