Tulle We Meet Again
By Christine Suppes

Paris, July 6--To celebrate the 100 th birthday year of Christian Dior, John Galliano re-created the career of the designer who gave us the “New Look” in 1947. Utilizing miles and miles of tulle under sequined corsets, he referenced Peru for the classic Dior nipped waist and Les Sylphides for well---the tulle. The overall effect seemed Impressionistic, a soft mélange of dreams, distant lands and fleeting sexuality, done up a la Paris. What to take from this dream? For the lucky couture client, perhaps the beautiful embroidered corsets which would enhance any well dressed woman’s closet. Suzy Menkes of the International Herald Tribune reported that Bernard Arnault, the boss of LVMH cried at the finale of the show. This might have been the biggest dream of all. Galliano’s Dior contract is up soon, and with so many reptile handbags on the arms of the couture clients, let’s hope Arnault’s emotion wasn’t just crocodile tears.
