The John Galliano Show My Generation Has Been Waiting For

The Unveiling of Galliano’s Margiela Artisanal Collection

If you’re reading this, then you have seen the universally spellbound reaction to John Galliano’s Margiela Artisanal show this past week during the Paris Couture. The night of the Wolf Moon witnessed Galliano staging his collection underneath Pont Alexandre III, conjuring a debauched Parisian nightlife scene from a bygone era.

The Magical Atmosphere

Two Pats (McGrath on makeup, Boguslawski on movement) rendered the models unrecognizable, giving them license to perform beyond the usual constraints of the runway. The audience’s reaction included shouting and stomping, with declarations that this collection will go down in history.

A Time Traveling Experience

For those fortunate enough to witness it in person, the experience was akin to time traveling to both the Paris of the 1930s and the Paris of the 1990s. The amalgamation of music, movement, and design created an unparalleled sensory experience.

Galliano’s Journey and Triumph

As a fashion and lifestyle blogger, my encounter with John Galliano’s work has been a blend of admiration and curiosity. Since taking over Margiela in 2014, I’ve witnessed the evolution of his presentations, each showcasing a different facet of his creative genius.

Galliano’s Evolution

From a persistent undercurrent of hesitation to the unbridled fantasy displayed in his latest show, Galliano has transcended his past to create a new narrative of courage and creativity. His triumph comes at a time when the fashion industry is dominated by algorithmic trends, making his Artisanal show a beacon of individuality and creativity.

A Bold Statement in Fashion

Galliano’s show stands in staunch opposition to the mindless middlebrow trends that often dictate the fashion landscape. It serves as a cri de coeur for creativity and individual taste, challenging the industry to embrace innovation and originality.

The Impact of Galliano’s Show

The unveiling of Galliano’s Margiela Artisanal collection has left an indelible mark on the fashion world. It has sparked conversations, admiration, and a renewed sense of excitement for the future of design.

Embracing Creativity

As we await the upcoming ready-to-wear collections, Galliano’s show serves as a reminder to celebrate creativity and push boundaries in all aspects of life. It has redefined what is possible in the realm of fashion and inspired a new generation of creatives.
