John Galliano Fall 2009 Redeems Itself from "Toxic" Snow with Gauzy Gowns

>> John Galliano took his audience to a Winter wonderland — literally, there was no heating, wind swept through the show space, a fog crept over, and snow fell — and it was beautiful.  Not everything was perfect, however: the fake snow caused coughing fits in the front row, and photographers revolted beforehand, because they were left waiting outside for hours; but Galliano's take on Ukranian virgin brides, replete with tinkling coins, carved wood lace-up platform heels with pom poms attached, and heavy embroidery, dazzled.  By contrast, the eveningwear was light — a standout gray fringe dress — and in lots of cases, almost nonexistent in sheer chiffon; Galliano seems to have a new thing for the bared tush, which appeared a few times here, like it did earlier in the week at Dior.  Harvey Weinstein, who was front row, didn't mind: "It was fantastic, theatrical, brilliant."
