The eponymous label of John Galliano was launched in 1984, subsequently after the purchase of his entire graduate collection from Central St. Martins by London’s Browns boutique that very same year. Galliano is known for his grandeur persona and fantastical runway presentations which are never short of drama and imaginations. In 1995, Galliano was appointed as the creative director for Givenchy, becoming the first British designer at a French couture house. But less than two years later, Galliano made the move to Christian Dior, which he has since become synonymous with. His menswear collection, launched in 2004, is known for breaking gender codes, extravagant runway shows and eccentric designs that never fail to disappoint.
