2009 Fall Paris Fashion Week: Christian Dior

John Galliano created a '20s inspired Fall collection filled with Indian and Asian nuances for Christian Dior. After I got past the somewhat blinding backdrop, I was able to focus in on Galliano's gowns and two piece suits. He played it safe with streamlined, feminine cuts but made up for it with bold colors, textural fabrics, and most prominently — bold prints. "I'm sure Mr.Dior would have loved these prints," said Galliano when talking about his use of Ikat prints.

Galliano's frocks ranged from hot pink mod with modified bubble hemlines to floaty silk chiffon creations in beautiful jewel tones. His two-piece suits were more structured and showed variety through different prints and colors. Also notice how Galliano edited his use of furs — other designers are all over them for Fall — by sparsely spreading them on hats and coat trims. All together, a merry, mixed bag from Galliano. By the way, we couldn't resist showing you this major buttage shot on the runway! Tee hee.
