Ever since graduating from the prestigious Central Saint Martins with his collection “Les Incroyables” in 1984, John Galliano has made himself known for his theatrics, construction technique and extravagant creativity, as projected in his couture work. Currently, John Galliano produces seventeen collections collectively per year for both Christian Dior and a label under his own name. His own label currently carries separate lines for menswear and women’s clothing.
John Galliano, the label, was established in 1985, and now regularly shows at Paris Fashion Week. Although Galliano did show menswear on the catwalk for his 1984 graduation collection and later in 1986, Galliano’s menswear was not launched until 2003.
Characteristic to his work, Galliano often draws his inspiration from a historical/cultural figure, identity or period. For example, his Fall/Winter 2009-2010 menswear collection cited Rembrandt (also known as the Hellfire Club, where “persons of quality” who wished to take part in immoral acts supposedly met) as inspiration.
John Galliano pieces are now available at Voi, including menswear.
