Fall 2008 Couture Notes: Christian Dior

With inspiration from the '50s, John Galliano produced a fall 2008 Couture collection that was seemingly constrained, nevertheless, ethereal and fantastical. It was so constrained, and toned down (for Galliano) that one poses the question of wearability. You may think that this collection is completely wearable but when given a closer look, it begs to differ. The "Galliano Exaggeration" that ran rampant throughout the 45 looks definitely makes one question the wearability. Yet, this is why we love Galliano for Christian Dior, it would not be so special nor so anticipated of a collection if Galliano would give us wearable.
