Dior Pick a Designer
Bill Gaytten is a designer that was thrown to the wolves in a time when there was little to no alternative. He managed the Ready-to-wear line, he is managing the accessories… but when it comes to Dior Haute Couture he is one king short a chess set.
An appropriate analogy and if you allow me to indulge you’ll see why. A King, the proud holder of all things beautiful, life, land, and luxury (fashion, runway, and luxury) appointed by god (LVMH) and holds the title of supreme ruler (Head of Christian Dior). The other part of an Emperor is that they have conviction for their purpose. Passion for their people and country. Fire that drives their get up and go. These things must be present in any designer, but the position at Dior requires the power to rule a dynasty and more.
Am I off my rocker… maybe. But the most recent Spring 2012 haute couture collection left me with a gaping void in my heart where great fashion use to reside. Now only a vacant waning feeling is left clawing for some passion. Begging for it. Okay ew not begging but you know what I mean.
Damn it LVMH, you’re lax attitude toward hiring someone who can actually replace Galliano is driving me mad. GET ON IT!
