"It is my intent to showcase that which I consider wearable art.
Clothing that is whimsical, dramatic, avant-garde and on the
cutting edge of design - as seen through my eyes.
Brilliance and madness are interchangeable.
This is my style inspiration. I invite you into my world."

DIOR - PARIS HAUTE COUTURE

Voluminous shapes accessorized with cinched waists, dramatic hats and beautiful veils.



The retro silhouettes are accented by glamorous and bold makeup.


How stunning is this full, red pleated skirt with yards of taffeta and matching sheer gloves?


The hat — evoking a bird in flight above a dove gray accordion waved jacket wrapped at the waist with a multi-braided leather belt accompanied by sheer detailed black gloves.


How amazing is this jacket and skirt! The cut and draping of this garment is stellar.


Veils need to make a comeback, now!





The volume of the neckline on one side plays with the volume of the skirt on the other.
This piece takes my breath away.


The fabrics in this collection are brilliant. I love each and every one.


Feathers, feathers, everywhere...




"Oh, my heart be still — the shoulders, the waistline, the skirt with petticoat. Impeccable!"






What a glorious hat...








Genius!

I adore this collection! No matter the drama and controversy surrounding John Galliano and his dismissal from Dior, he is an incredible designer. That cannot be denied.
