There are designers. There are Paris-based designers. No surprises the man who was behind Christian Dior
's extraordinary clothes is a little, dare we say, special himself. Remember the huge fashion storm he caused for that Parisian outburst
which consequently got him the sack??
A star ever since he first graduated from Central St Martins in 1984, and as with Vivienne Westwood
, Galliano looks to no particular current trends for inspiration preferring to plunder costume archives and history books. Romantic and outrageous are his trademarks.
It takes a genius like Galliano to turn around a flagging French fashion house and make it one of the most successful luxury brands on the planet - helped by sales of accessories, perfumes, make-up and an eccentric Brit at it's helm.
