Watching fashionable shows will give you many different feelings because each brand will tell you its own story. Christian Dior Haute Couture Spring Summer 2011 remind me of the reason why I love high fashion. I love fashion for the sake of fashion. You can get the latest fashion trend the first time and improve your ability to appreciate beauty so that you can build up your own style.
Let’s look at this fashion show closely. Showing the highly vintage glam, the Dior couture, created by John Galliano, is quite exaggerate and feminine. When you watch the shows, the colorful and magical movies are on in your mind.
John Galliano, the chief designer of France’s haute couture flagship – Christian Dior, is one of the most influential fashion designers of our time. He said: “I am here to make people dream, to seduce them into buying beautiful clothes and to strive to make amazing clothing to the best of my ability. That is my duty.”
This collection is said to be Galliano’s salute to René Gruau, the illustrator who worked for Christian Dior in the forties and fifties. He created the house’s most iconic imagery and felt it gave him another opportunity to indulge his passion for an era when couture was truly haute.
In this collection, you can find chiaroscuro everywhere. The interplay of light and shade shows that hand-painting fabric would have been the simplest way to achieve the desired result. Galliano and his studio used seven layers of tulle to create a shimmering depth of dégradé. Embroidery was used on one side of the fabric only, so it cast a subtle relief shadow.
