PARIS, Mar 13, 2009 / FW/ — With a runway that looks like it was coming out from a wormhole, one would expect either Alice in Wonderland or the Stargate crew to come out, but instead John Galliano sent out peasant women elegantly dressed in dirndl skirts and some of them looks like they came straight out of a harem.
It was signature Galliano in pageantry and creativity as boxy embroidered coats and skirts shaped with a crinoline paraded on the runway. And it is not just the clothes that were enticing. The shoes and costume jewelry are something to look forward to when Fall 2009 comes around.
