Beauty at John Galliano Spring/Summer 2009


John Galliano appearing on Christian Dior Haute Couture F/W 2002 by John Galliano.

Oh, magnificent!

“Galliano it is my heart, my name, my voice. Galliano is only the start of what I hope will be my legacy, my heritage – it is a collage of my life – with clothes rather than photos telling the story of all those that I have met, worked with and been inspire by. Galliano is the map from my soul to my heart – so only perfection and my most treasured adventures are good enough for Galliano!”
— John Galliano about his eponymous brand (from his interview with Valerie Steel, 2008). (via johngallianotheking)

Christian Dior Haute Couture ateliers

/look no. 5 from Spring Summer 2011 collection

1. step: the coat is made from white canvas to show the proportions and silhouette (it is done by a ‘modéliste’)

2. step: client tries on the mock-up to see how it fits 

3. step: designer chooses fabrics, colours and embroidery (The fabrics used in Haute Couture are the most luxurious and most expensive ones)

4. step: each part of the coat is cut (There are two ateliers, one for tailoring: Atelier tailleur and one for the dresses: Atelier flou. Each one has its own head seamstress called Première. At Atelier tailleur it is madame Monique, at Atelier flou it is madame Florence

5. step: the embroidery is done in special ateliers in Paris (maison Hurel, maison Lesage)

6. step: fabric is pleated in special ateliers in Paris (ateliers Logon)

7. step: seamstresses assemble the coat (there are many people involved in making one piece, everything is sewn by hand in Paris ateliers)

8. step: the coat is ironed (it is actually ironed after any manipulation or sewing)

9. step: the coat is tagged (it is the final step, and it means, that the piece is ready for the client)

10. step: the coat is delivered to the client… (this is actually where its story begins)

This is fantastic!

Kate Moss and John Galliano by Tim Walker for Vogue UK December 2013


Kate Moss and John Galliano in the December 2013 issue of British Vogue. I can’t get enough of this picture. I love their poses and the fact that a grand piano is falling apart as they are still in motion. I can’t wait to get my hands on this issue because these photos look amazing!
