John Galliano Suspended By Christian Dior

25 February 2011, 16.47 | Posted in Couture | 1 comment »

The news is flying all over the fashion world at the speed of high drama that John Galliano has been suspended by Christian Dior just days before his runway show. Apparently he got wasted in Paris last night and popped off to some couple on the street and included among his triple snaps were some anti-Semetic statements. Good one, John, cheez.

The above video, by the way, is one of Galliano teaching a young Kate Moss how to walk his runway. It was posted by a site (which I would credit but now can’t find) referencing that Galliano would be designing the dress for Kate Moss’s upcoming wedding.

Commissioned by Nowness,  Tommy Ton followed Goldwyn to the vintage pop-up marketplace A Current Affair, which she hosted in Los Angeles, in order to capture the adept scout in action—and also snapped her at home, away from the collecting frenzy. “It is super competitive,” Goldwyn says of these events. “I’m like a hawk—there’s no time for chit-chat.” NOWNESS secured a private audience with Goldwyn, who gave us a master class on shopping strategy and revealed why most things come down to sex and history. Interview on the flip and more images here.

Chanel Autumn/Winter 2010/2011 Video

29 July 2010, 18.03 | Posted in Couture, Models, advertisement | 1 comment »


This is a video of Chanel’s Autumn/Winter 2010/2011 couture collection. It’s interesting because it’s shot as though panning across a magazine editorial, with the models holding their poses against lush backgrounds. At points the camera zeroes in on details, but other than that the action is minimal. Personally I couldn’t handle the pace (or the music!), but that’s what posting on blogs all day does to your attention span!

Abed Mahfouz Autumn/Winter 2010 Couture

Abed Mahfouz cover

Abed  Mahfouz  takes us to a pace of pure elegance and a grandiose lifestyle that goes beyond the red carpet into the lives of the Mouna Al-Ayoub’s of the world.  Some say that couture is irrelevant, but you see I  grew up watching ‘Style with Elsa Klensch ‘ where all the designer shows ended with a bridal gown,  And then there were the countless times I watched Romy Shneider in Imperatrice Sisi, so the drama and opulence is definitely not lost on me.
