John Galliano makes his runway comeback debut by designing for fashion house Maison Martin Margiela’s Spring 2015 London show. I have met Mr.Galliano back when I used to manage the Andy Lecompte salon.
The designer has tried to make amends since his derailing at Dior and this show certainly not only opened the door to showcase his creativity, it down right broke the door down. The real standout for me was the hairstyling by Eugene Souleiman. Playful, gold glitter encrusted 20’s inspired waves ruled the runway. The way the gold flecks accented the hair, cementing it into place, made the models look like pure magical creatures walking down the runway. Thoughts of mystical lands ran through my mind when seeing the images and made me want to run straight to colorist, Danny Moon, who developed a glitter gel called Major Moon Shine. I once let Danny paint strands of my hair with gold glitter during the testing phases of his product, and felt like an excited 5 year old who had found a unicorn or a living My Little Pony. I have never wanted this grown up version of fairy dust lacquered in my hair more. For now, I will lust over the photos of the models who walked for Galliano and gaze at Eugene’s skilled hand at bending the hair into those architectural waves creating the avant garde style. I loved everything about it and now just need an excuse to rock this look in real life.
