The Simply Luxurious Life®: Christian Dior Spring 2012 Couture  

January 23, 2012

Christian Dior Spring 2012 Couture

Wearable couture? Who knew? Now if only I could afford it. But a girl can dream, and these dresses are what dance through my fashion dreams.

Bill Gaytten went back to the foundations of Dior – nipping the waists, flouncing the skirts – which is a 180 reverse from John Galliano’s extravagant Alice-in-Wonderland-esque designs, thus making them must more applicable for the woman who wants to not only purchase a piece, but be able to wear it down the street.  Have a look.

LOVE it. I think Galliano moving on is a good thing for the house of Dior. My fav thing about this is the use of the turban headbands and sheer materials.

Beautiful! It seems like Galliano drew inspiration from Jackie Kennedy, as well. Thanks for always keeping us up-to-date on these fashion collections, Shannon!
