DIOR FULL-LENGTH DOCUMENTARY: THE WORLD OF “HAUTE COUTURE”

 

This Dior full-length fashion documentary will leave you speechless, inspired and hungry for the creative process. John Galliano was planning to become  a fashion illustrator after graduating Central Saint Martins. Instead, he was destined to become one of the geniuses of fashion.

Spring 2011 couture collection is one of the most iconic and technically challenging works of the designer. Galliano turned René Gruau’s illustration style into a fashion masterpiece. The pencil strokes, graphite smears and scribbles, erasure marks, and gouache washes of Gruau’s illustrations were replicated in fabric and embellishment, used, said the designer, “in an illustrative way.”
