Yin And Yang

Haute Couture Fall 2010 shows are underway and yesterday John Galliano (of Dior) presented the “La Ligne Florale” collection which reminisced on Christian Dior‘s ‘Tulip Line collection’ from 1953.

One of the particular gowns instantly reminded us of this Archana Kochar gown presented a year back. No, this isn’t a Seeing Double edition because you can clearly see which designer took an inspiration/idea and came out with a winner instead of a dud.

This isn’t a post about discrediting Ms. Kochar, either. We know how much effort goes into a gown like that but the reason it didn’t work is because the flowers are too in your face. It doesn’t feel like inspiration any more, just replication.

Below are some of my favorite pieces from the collection. You can catch the whole collection Here.

    • i guess you missed reading “Christian Dior’s ‘Tulip Line collection’ from 1953.” That is the inspiration for both.
