British designer John Galliano owes his fame in part to the extreme sophistication he has brought to his ready-to-wear models.
For spring-summer 1995, John Galliano is presenting a resounding collection amidst old collectibles. His models are inspired by the silhouette of the 1950s, with a marked waist and rounded hips.
Among them, this satin strapless dress with open necklines on a very indented skirt is reminiscent of Christian Dior's "Camaïeu" dress (autumn-winter 1949-50), a strapless evening gown with a skirt adorned with two crossed satin panels and buttoned like a dinner jacket.
With hindsight, this collection heralds the appointment of John Galliano in 1996 as artistic director of the Christian Dior fashion house.
