- Story Text: - INTRO: Dior's first haute couture collection with Briton John Galliano at the helm has hit the Paris catwalks at last. And Emmanuel Ungaro has unveiled a couture show he calls the latest stanza of a long-running visual poem.
John Galliano married tradition with a romantic twist on Monday (January 20), evoking the boulevards of pre-World War One Paris in his first haute couture collection for Christian Dior.
Galliano embarked on a Proustian voyage with a stunning series of skinny Belle Epoque gowns, their derrieres padded and narrow skirts flairing gracefully from the knee to the floor.
Thousands of pink and white roses overflowed from Grecian vases as Galliano faithfully sent out Dior's New Look suits, here with their skirts clipped high on the thigh, in the label's trademark Prince of Wales tweeds.
"It was beautiful. Bravo to Galliano," designer Jean Paul Gaultier told Reuters Television after the show.
Emmanuel Ungaro's haute couture collection saw him once again stressing the seductive for a show he likened to a visual poem.
Japanese prints and drape dresses dominated a collection of fluid lines and outright femininity, accented by witty headpieces and sharply tailored jackets.
