S/S 2010 Couture
Super femenine, decadent and pushing the limits of design.
John Galliano at Dior presented a collection that showed exactly what top couture ateliers should be technically capable of producing. Based on Edwardian riding habits, beautiful coats and skirts led onto a line up of glamorous cocktail dresses and magnificent ball gowns.
The garments, sculpted out of luxury fabrics, were in stunning colour combinations of olive, claret, sage, chocolate, aubergine and pistachio. Galliano was inspired by 1950s fashion designer/ technician Charles James.Side draped skirts, organza, jewel and lace transparency are set to become big trends this summer.
Personally I am drawn to the element of opulence, decadence, luxury and glamour that is generated through the use of fabrics, drape and styling. It is my intention to generate a feeling of glamour through my own use of luxury fabrics, embelishment and styling so that my collection has impact when exhibited and shown on the catwalk.
