Galliano for Dior, every year I wait with baited breath for the latest of his fanciful creations; this years S/S 2010 haute couture collection inspired by all things equestrian, was as everyone one before, a theatrical exstravaganza.

Taking a keen interest in haute couture, and particularly of late as part of a research project the 1950’s era, I couldn’t help but notice how Galliano’s latest creations echoed the essence of Dior’s couture through out the late 1940’s/1950’s.
