Seashell Dress, 1988
John Galliano, born 1960
John Galliano is celebrated for his ingenious approach to dress design. Evoking the crisp and sculptural qualities of scallop shells, this dress has a circular petal skirt composed of concentric rows of overlapping and meandering bands of bias-cut organdie. The strapless, boned bodice is relieved by a deep cummerbund of checked cotton.
White organdie strapless dress with a flared asymmetrical skirt. Accessorised with a green and white checked cotton sash. Bias cut organdie with boned bodice.
