After a week of shocking revelations and frenzied rumours, there was uneasy and thoughtful anticipation surrounding the Dior show. It opened with a statement from Dior Chief Executive Sidney Toledano explaining that the house must stay true to its values. Accordingly, the show focused on Dior’s heritage, relying on its rich history to lead it through the recent controversy. Chic daywear with a touch of 70′s bohemia was followed by some stunning lingerie-inspired lace and chiffon eveningwear. They had Galliano’s deft lightness of touch, written all over them, and reminded those gathered, what a great loss this sad week represents.
