    Oh my good god. The entire show is now up at style.com and I have to say, this is the ugliest, most horrible collection of clothing I have ever seen in my life. Galliano is on the wrong drugs because this show is a complete and utter train wreck.

    I appreciate his exploration of the Poiret coat but the rockabilly inspiration is so heavy-handed. This looks like 1920's Vogue covers meets Hot Topic teen goth! How gross.

    :sick: :wacko: :blink: :sick: :yuk: :shock: :dizzy:

    Remember ...what u see on the runway doesn't mean what u'll get in reality... if u browse through the racks at the dior store .. u'll find lots of wearable pieces with impeccable details and craftsmanship... Dior RTW is just an extension of Dior's Couture interms of the show itself... very loud, over the top, and larger than life.. but the clothes are definitely more discipline than those on the runway... which are purely showpieces or just-for-loan clothes for the celebrities..

    I think we all know that already, but thanks for the reminder. And just exactly what does that achieve, showing bizarre junk on the runway that nobody is going to buy or want to wear, and then filling the store racks with a bunch of completely unrelated designs? Isn't the whole point of a fashion show to give the trade and consumers a sneak preview of what is actually on offer in the stores for the upcoming season? Some people will surely scream "don't you get it? It's for PR and media attention!", well then I'd say this is a truly unconstructive, wasteful, and redundant practice. With other companies fashion is partially about pursuing genuinely good designs, and bringing them to the market. With LVMH, Dior in particular, it's all aboug generating hype among the media, and chanelling it into sales of tacky logoed handbags and slogan tees. :innocent:

    Well, whatever your quibbles may be with Galliano, there's a reason why Dior is one of, if not *the* most profitable fashion/makeup/accessories house in the world.

    By complaining about his collections you're giving them everything they want in terms of shock value. When people walk into Holts or Saks or something and see outfits that slightly resemble the runway collection it will trigger a conscious reminder of how over the top it was. Anything with the Dior name on it sells, you can't say that for the more 'run of the mill' houses out there....

    lets try and forget about the creepers and the CREEPY make up.

    the clothes are just awful themselves... they got absolutely NO shape.
    like potato sacks :yuk:

    i'm just watching this carefully now (the whole show :doh: )
    so, regardless the useless styling/editing/shapes :rolleyes:
    i admit that strictly on colour terms his yellow-nile blue/green combinations (first group) were quite cute.

    evidence :P

    I'm soooooo dissappointed. I love John and I usually love his collections, but this one just didn't work. I personally love what he has done to make Dior one of the leaders of fashion nowadays, but this was too over the top, too in your face, just too much. The use of color was great, and the pompadours on the models were kinda cute actually, but I just didn't find this appealing. I'm hoping that this was just an error in judgement on his part and that this will not be a new direction for him. Remember, every designer has a bad collection now and then. The bags were great too, plus, they're a great alternative to the tiny clutches being shown. Any woman with a lot of stuff in her bag will appreciate them.

    :heart: u John, but please, don't let this happen again!
