It’s impossible to say anything positive about what led to John Galliano’s dismissal at Christian Dior and his eponymous label. But for most people, it’s also impossible to mention his name and not think about the glorious fashion he has given us over the years. Therefore, to celebrate all the beauty John Galliano has created this century, i present to you an hommage to my fallen hero. From Dior couture S/S 2000, which was presented in January of 2000 and also marked the beginning of the often famed ‘mirrored runway era’, to John Galliano F/W 11.12 – the last collection he ever worked on. All of his Galliano womenswear, Dior couture and Dior ready-to-wear shows are included in this ultimate compilation video. That’s a total of 74 shows. While John fights his demons and hopefully plans for a majestic return to form, let us enjoy his passionate, creative and beautiful shows from the past 12 years.
