Over this past weekend John Galliano debuted his Christian Dior Resort 2011 line in Shanghai. The fashion show took place in a Dior grey tent that was located next to the Huangpu River in the Bund. Nearly 500 guests were in attendance including Galliano’s muses Charlize Theron and Marion Cotillard.
Though the line had no Chinese influences at all, Galliano chose to present the Parisian inspired Dior Resort 2011 collection in Shanghai because “I was just trying to recapture that excitement that was happening at that time in Paris, which is very similar to what is happening in Shanghai today,” he said.
With a strong sixties chic vibe, the collection is full of colour (like mint green, barbie pink, baby blue) florals, babydoll dresses, eyelets, and even choker necklaces.
