Christian Dior Couture...

A magical collection bought to you by the inspirational garden that is John Galliano's head! The beautiful Dior Autumn/Winter couture show was held in Paris this week, as if mother nature herself had christened the catwalk - models walked the runway in pansy prints and petal textures as if grown on the body.

Like the personified pansies in Alice in Wonderland come to life, Galliano mixed delicious colour combinations of orange and black, violet and pink, indigo and lime, finished with cellophane head pieces like topsy-turvy bouquets of flowers.

Textures of chiffons, tulles and mohair layered fabric - transformed the female body into blooms shaped like tulips, pansys and blossom. Galliano himself said he did his research by watching tulips for hours on end, to study the way the light hits the flower.

Hair and make-up complimented all things floral, with brightly coloured make-up and beehive'd barnets topped off with cellophane head pieces.

Over all a completely elegant couture collection which pleases with texturized day dresses and humongous tulle gowns. Prints and silhouettes inspired from Galliano's observation of tulips and all things nature. With the colours and intense beauty, the whole collection is as if it has come straight out of the garden....from a parallel universe of paradise.
