Versions of Lani

John Galliano's RTW spring collection at  le grand Opéra Comique realy inspired me. The show was more like a theatre show than a fashion show. As the models strode down the runway in much more than just a Galliano outfit. Each look was meant to portray a version of a portrait of Maria Lani, an actress from 1920's Paris who ended up with 50 works of art which were all portraits of herself.

The collection was full of intricate beads and delicate organza that contradicted the laced-edged leather. Galliano kept a sense of sophisticated beauty while incorporating this seasons bright colours.
