The last place we expected to find amazing work done with body image was the Paris high-fashion couturier runway shows.
But designer John Galliano has proved us wrong. His models range from under four feet tall to over seven feet tall. The weight range is equally wide, with both fat men and fat women represented. The age range could easily be sixty years. And this description doesn’t begin to do the show justice. (In case you don’t know, this is a world where even tiny variations are rare.)
See if you agree. Go to this report on Galliano’s spring show. The slide show is your best bet to see the work; don’t miss any of the slides.
We both feel like we have a lot to say about this, after we have a chance to read your comments and to think our own reactions through. We’re leaning towards saying that it’s fabulous.
What do you see?
(By the way, we took the title of this post from the phrase that Galliano used for his invitations and embroidered across some of the coats in the show.)
