they all will come back soon probably. they are already available, but not in the lists yet
^ Wow, thank you for the information! I thought the images were lost forever. Catwalking's Galliano archive dates back back to '85, but for some reason there's no coverage of his early Dior collections. Fashionanthology has all of his Dior work, but with large watermarks. I'll definitely be keeping my eyes peeled for the return of more links on Firstview now!
Christian Dior by John Galliano (2000-2002)
I'm pretty sure these collections don't have their own thread, and since it has been ten years it would be great to revive Dior's very early 00s.
This period defined what Dior was for the most part of the last decade. I personally think a few collections are very questionable whether they truly maintain the house's spirit, but I absolutely love what he did for the most part.

Someone in the 'Fiercest Runway Moments' thread recently brought up the Christian Dior S/S 2002 collection and I just found it quite interesting how it's viewed so differently today as opposed to 2001, when it received an abundance of negative reviews. Most took issue with the overall attitude of the show, which took place not too long after the September 11th terrorist attacks. I personally liked it but Suzy Menkes did not seem to agree:
Christian Dior S/S 2002
I'm curious to know your thoughts on this now that more than 10 years has passed since the show..I doubt that any designer would really take so much of a risk today (Galliano included).
^It's always interesting to look back on shows because we usually lose so much of the context in retrospect. Now, looking at that show, I have no reason to wring my hands and think, 'Oh, should this have been done so soon after 9/11?'... It can stand on its own. I'm not a fan of the Menkes review because she seems quite biased, like she has a template in mind that Galliano's work simply doesn't match; sort of overtly classic, romantic, and pretty. She seems so taken aback by the 'aggressiveness' of the show as if it really couldn't have been expected. So perhaps it's good that all this time has passed and we can look at it with fresh eyes, without instantly comparing it to the other shows that went on that same week or expecting it to be tamer under the circumstances.
I wonder where I could find the Fall 2000 Couture collection in full (and even better if in HQ)?
F/W 2002 Couture seems EPIC! Want to see the full show.

^ I'm dead. I can't find the words to describe my feelings towards seeing the collection in full.
