Galliano's Russian Reign

"we shall find peace. we shall hear angels, we shall see the sky sparkling with diamonds" ~anton chekhov

Though the fashion of my day is far remote from John Gallian0's Fall Collection, I am inspired!

His creative genius makes a RUSSIAN collection look totally fresh and never explored. Yves Saint Laurent turned to Russia for inspiration in 1976 with his Ballet Russe Collection. The Collection was shown in Paris this week.
