Oh So Divine Dior

Friday, January 28, 2011

Paris is a flutter with gorgeous gowns at the moment, as couture season is upon us again.  Inspired by Christian Dior's golden age of haute couture in the 40's and 50's, designer John Galliano has created a breathtaking couture collection as a tribute to RenĂ© Gruau.  He was the illustrator responsible for the house's iconic images of the time when it's 'New Look' was in vogue. 

This opulent collection is too exquisite for words, I just adore the picture perfect vintage make-up and hairstyles too.  These sensational garments are the result of hundreds of hours work by infinitely talented couturiers, who have handpainted, dyed and embroidered each of these pieces to become the mesmerising looks gracing the runway.  I would love to wear each and every outfit, they are all absolutely amazing.  Spectacular work from a master couture dramatist.
