A catwalk filled with fitted, high-waist, asymmetrical skirts, and ruffles, pleats and gatherings pinching material into unique twists, while matched with top hats and whips was seen at John Galliano’s Dior Spring 2010 Couture display.
I absolutely loved the rich colors chosen for the pieces along with the silky fabric in some, yet rough, textured fabrics chosen for the others.
It’s as if most of the pieces have two creative ideas fused into one and almost all can get away with it. The random burst of fabric and style creeping its way out from underneath catches my eye in many of the pieces.
I get this twisted circus feel with this collection, and it reminds me of chic, vintage lion tamers (aside from the evening gowns of course!)
The evening gowns had astonishing embellishments and mixtures of colors like petrol blue with chocolate and olive with sea foam.
Volume was a definite goal with these pieces to where two miles of Valenciennes lace was added to a dramatic black skirt!
