fall couture collections: christian dior

by Jeremy Danté

much like an exotic garden in full bloom; the FW10 haute couture collection presented by the house of christian dior provided explosive color & mind-bending beauty. models walked the runway as living floral gardens & drew further comparisons to flower arrangements with the addition of multicolored cellophane up-dos. the make-up artistry done by pat mcgrath drew in to the current branded beauty image adopted by john galliano as creative director of the label. an extravaganza of imagination & feminine design elements was seen from start to finish. unlike the last two seasons of dior couture, galliano opted for something much more theatrical than classical this season. the void felt in the absence of larcroix during couture collections is somewhat easier to bare with a visionary like galliano still designing his ass off. dior sits atop the fashion food chain as legend- thus confirmed.
