John Galliano

John Galliano - Born in Gibraltar in 1960, Dior's chief designer John Galliano graduated from London's prestigious St Martins College of Art & Design with a first-class degree in 1983. His graduation collection, called 'Les Incroyables' and inspired by the French Revolution, met with immediate acclaim (Vogue's Spy column described Galliano as "a modish costumier, with a preference for romanticism and androgyny"). The collection was snapped up in its entirety by Joan Burnstein, who put the designs in the window of her South Molton Street boutique, Browns, during London Fashion Week. Among those who saw the display was the French designer Joseph, who placed an order with Galliano, sparking feverish interest in the fabulously inventive young graduate.
John Galliano is part of the new-breed of avant-garde British designers. Known for his innovativeness and being experimental, John Galliano is an exciting designer. His brilliance comes from his ability to create a new look based on diversity. His haute couture designs are theatrical, exciting and ahead of its time. When translated to street clothes, they are wearable and fluid. John Galliano has eyes for details, his collection always completely accessorized. He became internationally acclaimed during the 80s, one of the spearheads of British designers who swept the fashion world in that decade. With Galliano Girl and Galliano Genes, he developed clothes for the younger set of his mainline buyers. When Christian Dior was bought by LVMH, Bernard Arnault offered Galliano the House of Dior. It has been an ideal marriage since then. John Galliano revitalized the House of Dior, made it more contemporary and totally redefined the meaning of the "New Look." John Galliano can also translate his talent very easily on the web. "Miss Galliano," was specially created to be the designer's virtual muse. Each chapter is a virtual yarn, where Miss Galliano travels at different places and changes outfits for each occasion, in a John Galliano creation of course. Edgy and wickedly amusing, John Galliano's website is an great example of what a fashion designer can do - show his designs and showcase another facet of his talent.
