John Galliano - Paris Fashion Week A/W 2010-2011 with Nia B - Day 6

My Personal Invitation!

Below is a slideshow of photos taken by my friend, Leah Grant,
who acted as my photographer during the Galliano show.

Sorry that I took so long to post this on my blog, but I have been bombarded with taking mid-terms this week! I am tired, tired, tired! I can’t wait to get back to Dubai this week and relax on the beach!

It has been a dream come true to have been invited to some of the most fabulous runway shoes this A/W 2010-2011 Paris Fashion Week. Of course, Galliano was the highlight of all the fashion shows I attended. He is a pure creator of imagination and should always be thought of as one the greatest designers of our time.

Funny enough, this was supposed to be the season for Ready-to-Wear; however, I’m not sure John Galliano got the memo! lol His showcase was over the top as usual, with all the couture extremes attached. The “Ghetto Geisha” hair styles and the gigantic Afghani hats, which the model wore, were outrageous. Some of the clothing looked like it could have been worn by the Pirates of the Caribbean and others reminded me of the costumes that the Harlem Renaissance female performers would wear, like Josephine Baker in the 1920 to 1940’s period.

Over all, I enjoyed watching this fanciful collection and all the mix of delightful fabrics. I know I could rock the skirt with the belts resting around thighs, as well as some of those tailored blazers with the fur sleeves. It was all so surreal, exciting and energetic and the models were stunning! I was just glad to be a part of it, and it didn’t hurt that I was sitting right across for “The Queen” herself, Anna Wintour! Wow…what an experience!

Hey fashion lovers; I can’t wait to hear what you have to say! All comments are always a joy to read…oh, and don’t forget to “tell’m I told you!”
