However, I have never seen these collections in full, and to see such a personal, intelligent and free vision is one of the most inspiring experiences one can have.
I'm crying first and foremost over the beauty of these clothes and the context they are created in, but then of course I am crying for the current corporation-forced suppression of one of the most fantastical minds in the history of fashion.
I agree with everything you said! When I look at previous collections (pre-2004) and compare to now, it seems emotion and romanticism (and design) has been trashed just to make money.. I believe that since fashion design and all other creative fields are from the spirit, they should have a spirit of their own and many collections in these days lack any spirit. John Galliano's collections for Dior would be the
collections I would have thought to not evoke passion, emotion, romanticism, or any type of human response. I just don't connect to anything coming down the runway of Dior anymore (or Gucci, or Chanel, or Versace.....).
(and I hope your mouth feels better
sounds like "dirty European aristocracy".....
