John Galliano´ s Biography

"My work is about pushing the boundaries of creation"

John Galliano is one of the hero's of the British fashion. Son of emigrant parents, Galliano was born and was born in 1960 and was baptized Juan Carlos Antonio. Galliano´s mum is Spanish and his father is from Gibraltar, the British colony that saw him born and grow. At his six years of age, his family moved to the south of London. But his past, with the religious ceremonies and the culture full of colour and sun, end up being a constant inspiration for Galliano, who proudly assumed his Latin vanity as his signature and his trademark. After completing Wilson´s Grammar School for Boys, Galliano entered Central Saint Martin’s College of Arts, where he graduated in 1984. His graduation collection, inspired in the French revolution and called "Les Incroyables" was immediately bought by Joan Burstein from Browns and it launched him to success. In 1992, after a past marked by financial difficulties, problems with supporters and collections considered commercially impracticable, Galliano moved to Paris, where he started to present his collections. In 1995, he was announced successor of Hubert at Givenchy house. One year later, he jumped from Givenchy to Dior where he presents his fabulous collections today.

Here´s some of his creations for Dior House:
