John Galliano Presentation/Show Paris FW2011
It should have been a presentation of the John Galliano-collection, but instead it was a small show in a small setting. Even Sidney Toledano, the chief executive of Dior, which also invests in the Galliano brand, was there. Maybe as a signal of support for the staff members of Galliano’s atelier.It must have been strange for everybody who was there today, being there after such a difficult week following the scandal John Galliano got himself into.
The collection that was showed was – according to Cathy Horyn of the New York Times ‘fairly straightforward and typically Galliano, a mix of romantic dresses, a loosely draped mint kimono with black lace appliqué, a black vinyl trench and a silk halter dress printed with what appeared to be curlicues of cigarette smoke’.
