In Paris the first Dior Couture show without designer John Galliano was presented at the Rodin Museum to mostly negative, biting reviews. This was the first collection by studio director Bill Gaytten, a studio assistant who came to Dior in 1999 with John Galliano.

They recently named Bill Gaytten the creative director of the Galliano brand.

John Galliano’s shoes are not easy to fill. Even with the the entire Galliano creative team in place – makeup artist Pat McGrath, hairstylist Orlando Pita, millner Steven Jones and Jeremy Healy on music this Dior Couture collection ‘failed to launch‘ according to many press reports including the New York Times.

“Hello, gorgeous! Giambattista Valli may be a newbie at couture week (yes, this is his first collection!) but he scored a home run.” (MyDaily UK)

“On the day when he was finally able to realize his long-nursed couture dreams, Giambattista Valli rose to the challenge of tradition with a collection that threw down the gauntlet to anyone who would insist that this rarified métier is on its last legs.”
