COUTURE REPORT: Christian Dior Fall 2009

Attending the festivities this Couture Week: France’s First Lady Carla Bruni, actress Claire Danes and Madonna to name just a few. The 2009-10 Christian Dior Collection by John Galliano, is full of circus-bright color combos in basic shapes. Galliano ever conscious of the state of the economy, brought back the intimacy and refinement of a show as if it were held at The Dior Salon in Paris circa 1950's. Corsets and bras reminiscent of that era when they were politely referred to as foundations, were shown as outerwear over long skirts full of diaphanous fabric. According to Boston Fashion, "Outside of showing off the amazing craftsmanship of Dior intimate apparel, this collection thoroughly reinforces John Galliano's message of getting back to the core and essence of Dior Couture. He clearly understands that Couture will endure this current recession but not without trials and self reflection . . . . "
