spring 2007 haute couture: christian dior.

collections Uncategorized

john galliano used a recent trip to japan as inspiration for the dior s/s couture show. he described the collection as “origami meets madame butterfly.”

the construction of the gowns was downright incredible (croc suit, anyone?) and the presentation was stunning. everything was there: structured suiting with multiple layer flap pockets and collars and crystal embroidery, traditional pieces overlaid with japanese scenes, and ornate gowns with micropleated skirts.

and what’s better than shalom in an origami wedding gown finale?
