John Galliano AW11

March 7, 2011

With all the controversy surrounding John Galliano’s downfall it’s not surprising that his namesake label’s AW11 collection got some mixed reviews. Not because of his vision or his skill in executing it, but because of concerns about the viability of a label whose founder and designer has alienated himself in spectacular fashion. Personally, I think Dior did the right thing letting him go, as the man clearly has some issues he has to sort out, and while there is absolutely no excuse for his behaviour, I am a great believer in separating the art from the artist. For me the collection was stunning and a reminder to all what made Galliano such a big star in the fashion world in the first place. As for his label, I think the fashion world may not be terribly forgiving, but I do believe that they will be quite forgetful. Just look what happened to Kate Moss.
