John Galliano

A girl would feel like Cinderella going to the ball. dressed in anyone of these gorgeous frocks.
There's something so ladylike about all these fabulous gowns, that John Galliano has created.

John Galliano is one of the most influential fashion designers of our time.
Born in Gibraltar, he grew up in London and launched his own label before becoming designer of France's Haute Couture flagship, Christian Dior in Paris.
He has created the most spectacular fashion shows of our time. Not surprising because Galliano is fashions... great romantic.
John Galliano's charmed rise to fame reads, not unlike a fairy tale.
He is one of my favourite designers.

May all my dear friends, have a happy weekend


  1. Oooo...I love those dresses/gowns. Love the creamy pretty.

    Love the beautiful little Beatrix Potter journal. So sweet. I have a few miniature Potter stories..

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
    Hugs, Nancy

  2. Wowza! I can only imagine attending a Fashion Show this would be such fun to see in person. Your pics on your post are the next best thing.

    God bless and have a sweet week-end!

  3. Gorgeous!!! My dad and stepmom were married in Gibraltar!!

    Have a wonderful weekend!!


  4. I'm not a big fan of John Galliano time after time. They're just beyond me, those dresses. I love what Hannah McGibbon does for Chloe instead. But still, his work is very impressive to watch.

  5. Isn't it amazing how gay men create the most feminine clothing???

    I especially love the pink one with big roses peeping out from underneath!!!! I would LOVE to wear that!!!!

    Thank you for your visit over at my place, you are always welcome! :)

  6. i love Cinderella. I guess I would take the 4th dress. Not too drape.

    btw, I saw the designs of Victoria. I love it coz she features ragged masculinity. How did the competition go?

  7. Love all John's designs - huge success already when he started in London!A true fairy tale come true!

    Have a lovely weekend!
