Dior Haute Couture Fall 2010
Lately, I have really not been loving the collections coming out of Dior. First, they seem to be the same for a couple of seasons. For example, the fall 2009 couture lingerie look was carried on into RTW spring 2010. Then, spring 2010 couture's equestrian theme was carried on into RTW fall 2010. Now, John Galliano is a wonderful designer - there is no doubt about that - but I feel like he needs to be more creative with what he does for Dior, not just his own line. Sure, there is pressure to keep the aesthetic of the great old houses alive, but we also must look at the future. Fashion is about the future, the current, or "connecting with the times," as many have said. I ask, "what are the times?" I never got that question. Do all women feel the same? Just because this economy is failing should we all wear black? No! For me, fashion is about bringing you to another place, somewhere you never could have gone before. Fashion is only a feed for confidence, imagination and individuality. Back to Dior, now. Finally, we have managed to break away from the horses and lingerie of seasons past and move onto bright hues and fuzzy flowers. Yes, fuzzy flowers.
