Spotlight: John Galliano

Paris Fashion Week
Galliano Ready to Wear
aw 08/09

JOHN GALLIANO looked to the East for his own-name collection this season, tapping into the unstructured silhouettes and Oriental influences of Twenties design legend Paul Poiret. 

Quoting from Coleridge's famous poem 
Kubla Khan, guests to the show were invited to a "stately pleasure dome" and, on setting, Galliano never disappoints - one could devote whole reports to the lavish backdrops against which the designer reveals his sartorial stories (top marks to the model who took to the catwalk not only balancing on the sky-high platforms for which Galliano is notorious, but holding a crow as she did so). 

i figured i'd actually give you a decent post tonight, so as i sit here with my green tea watching paris fashion week in the comfort of my own living room in brisbane (for the second or third time), i present to you... 
my favorite images from this collection.. pure and utter eye-candy
i warn you, very image heavy!
