Critics, editors, buyers were collapsing under the drama of Galliano’s creations. Even an unlettered fashion eye could see that the outfits were fab. They articulated some utopian fantasy of idleness and beauty, a fantasy realized as much in the way the clothes were worn as in the clothes themselves. A model in a bias-cut silver-lamé sheath dress with a draped cowl décolletage and falling lingerie shoulder straps reclined against a metal post, clutched her hands to her breast, then doubled over, rolling her eyes heavenward as if under the burden of an unspeakable boredom. It was as if she were saying that the highest achievement of woman was to resist whatever would dare attempt to make an impression on her. – Chip Brown of New York Magazine (August 25, 1997)
