Deconstructed on Display


John Galliano designed this deconstructed masterpiece for Dior release in 2003, and it is on display at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne.  Thankfully, I am on the opposite side of the world, or I fear my attendance would result in rubbing myself all over the dress, trying to mark my territory in order to claim it as my own.

  1. What I want to know is does anyone have the issue of Vogue with this dress in it? I recognized this on sight, and I would love to see those photos again… any Vogue hoarders out there?

  2. I don’t think there is anyone out there that can touch Galliano’s brilliance as a designer. He manages to do it all so elegantly.

  3. I am in Melbourne, and that whole exhibit is amazing, they have Dior toiles and all sorts of lovely things. There are some other things there that are very dark and delicious.. a man’s suit that has been deconstructed/reconstructed into a woman’s bustle coat was one of my favourites 🙂

    There are free postcards with a picture of the gown you’ve featured on it – I grabbed a couple of them, if you would like me to send you one I’d be more than happy to – just email me and let me know! 🙂
