Vintage John Galliano Black Silk Crepe Shirt 1980s London Label

Vintage John Galliano Black Silk Crepe Shirt 1980s London Label.

Once John Galliano had graduated from City and East London College, he enrolled at Central Saint Martins, where he made a remarkable impact. His graduation collection, titled ‘Les Incroyables’, made brilliant by his romantic flair and diligence, received huge approval. Indeed, his whole line was hastily snapped up and put into the window of Browns boutique. In 1984, Galliano unleashed his own label. More critical approval followed. His daring reinvention of romantic themes and delicate, superbly tailored garments were his trademarks. In 1987 he received the ‘British Designer of the Year’ award. However, critical success was not matched by major financial success. In frustration, he quit London for Paris in the early 1990’s, and was appointed creative director for the French couture house, Givenchy; several years later he moved to Christian Dior. Today, he is creative director for the Maison Margiela brand.
