John Galliano References Rudolf Nureyev for A/W 2011/12Posted by in Follow The Buyers | Front Row: Big Brands
John Galliano is the master of the great fashion show. This season the legendary designer created a collection inspired by Russian ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev. Beginning with his immigrant roots, Galliano succinctly captured the different aspects of Nureyev’s life and career, from his swinging ’60s personal style, during his rise in London, to a series of layered knitwear looks that could have been fresh from the dancer’s rehearsal studio, the show closed with Galliano’s personal interpretation of the dancer’s super star status; using sumptuous silks, velvets and furs to create sharp, tailored evening wear. The collection was a feast for the eyes and epitomised the designer’s unique, baroque style.
