Christian Dior Haute Couture S/S 97 Paris
Since it's been ten years when this show took place, I think it's about time we create a thread on this amazing collection. This debut collection of Galliano at Dior is still an iconic show and in my opinion, he never surpassed the beauty and succes of this collection.
I would love to see some pictures...I know the collection used to be up on Firtsview, but I was stupid enough not to save them to my computer, so post away!

Meanwhile, here's some video footage of the collection:

Great thread

I was 13 when this came out, just discovering fashion,
but I can still remember how much I loved it.
Wish I still had those old Vogues...

Two reviews of the collection:

Among Couture Debuts, Galliano's Is the Standout (NYT)

At Dior, Galliano Fluffs It — Gorgeously (IHT)

What a wonderful collection, thank you Mr-Dale for posting this thread! I am absolutely in love with contrast of the débutante-esque dresses and the african inspired shifts.
