Dior at the Paris Fashion Week

The Paris fashion shows from the Paris Fashion Week can be described from primitive to refined, with a cave girl theme at Vivienne Westwood and a celebration of 1940s elegance at Christian Dior. But don't expect to find the outfits in the clothing stores in Dubai as the timing is wrong (a bit late) and most of the retailers already have ordered the coming seasons collections.
The runway was always about ideas, it's always about a conception of how somebody is thinking for the season.z
Nowhere has this been more true than at Dior, famed for featuring outfits that verge on the unwearable. Criticism of its over-the-top approach recently prompted the label to tone down the theatricals, but without losing any of its luster.
Dior's blockbuster show celebrated two milestones - the house's 60th anniversary and British designer John Galliano's 10th year at the helm of the brand.
Models swept down a grand double staircase in ladylike ensembles including cinched coats with over sized fur collars and sleeves, multilayered cocktail dresses in shimmering silk gazar and sinuous evening gowns fit for a Hollywood siren.
