Galliano and Ten Years in the Blazing Saddles

You’ve got to give it to him though – John Galliano, a guy that, ten years ago, gave the designer handbag, in the shape of a saddle, complete with a dangling stirrup, a new meaning. The saddlebag, that incidentally seemed to be a visual joke, sums up what the flamboyant designer brought upon his arrival at the grand French couture house that day. His sense of humour, along with a strong determination to change Dior’s rather bourgeois image, were key ingredients to his success.

As couture shows in Paris are running on full blast, we can't wait to see the creations of Galliano & co as he’s celebrating 1o years as head designer of Dior.
