PFW: John Galliano

By: Maddison Brown
There was something very dark and mysterious about the Fall 2013 John Galliano collection. Perhaps it was the venue of choice; the very beautiful and full of character Le Centorial building, but this was no ordinary show. The models took the runway with dramatic make up and elegantly knotted chignons. The pieces were true art forms, with deep tones including purple, black and navy. 

One popular colour scheme involved cobalt blue and magenta ombre. Many featured bell sleeves, with little focus on the female silhouette and instead a wide straight look. Outfits were very often two pieced, with one in particular featuring a beautiful fur pullover short sleeve over a maxi dress. The rest of the collection offered many heavy textiles and textures shown in wool jackets, paired with pencil skirts. Overall the collection was stunning, truly telling a story of character and depth.
