If you ever wanted to know "where do designers like John Galliano's get their inspiration from?" look back at your social studies book and you will see how fashion is a recurring cycle!!
You have Marie Antoinette look with the frame with the over the top details of ribbons and you have the Christian Dior New Look 1947 which is a classic samples of you learn from your past!!
I think it is an amazing thing for Christian Dior couture fashion show to see the inspiration all over the runway.
