Well, one thing's for sure; never a dull moment when Dior shows!

Great pics Acid...I actually like this collection a lot more than his past couture collections...especially the Spring 2003... It's over the top, it's kind of gawdy, and IMO Galliano at his best at Dior

Remember the Balenciaga debacle a few seasons ago? He certainly didn't get off lightly.
i don't.

I haven't finished reading the whole topic because I quit halway through but it seems like I was always saying how unwearable Galliano's couture was and few people agreed with me and now I find this one of his most wearable collections and most people say its unwearable!!! When will it end? Anyway I am not a fan of Galliano but I really like this collection. Hello last collection with the scarab beatles, so unwearable. I really like this influence, VW or not.

Are you referring to when he 'stole' some ideas for his Spring 2002 collection...I think it was that collection

I really really don't see any resemblence to that VW collection...ok so the inspiration was the same, but the outfits are SO different....they can't be compared...(now don't start saying there was now inspring but only copywork...we've heard that now )

sure, the jewel-encrusted scarab breastplates and humongo gigantic scarab chandelier earrings were unwearable.....but the clothing was gorgeous

i actually agree.
i only brought up that vw collection because
a: john always seems to be inspired by mme westwood in one way or another, and
b: they both shared the same common inspiration: queen elizabeth i



other than that, i must say that the collection at dior and westwood are worlds apart.

ps: i this thread. we're at like 8 pages now right?
