In 1990, John Galliano moved from London to Paris. His early years in Paris are described as an ebb and flow, mostly determined by financial backing or the lack thereof. Cycles of decline and regrowth have since characterized the public perception of Galliano. After forgoing the previous season due to lack of funds, Galliano’s spring/summer 1994 collection was presented in the Louvre’s Cour Carrée to critical acclaim. In March 1994, pieces from the collection were celebrated in a Vogue editorial

Ralph Lauren specializes in promoting an idealized romantic lifestyle, whether it is the WASP-y life of inherited privilege in the northeast, the rugged individualism of the American cowboy, or British colonialism in Africa. However, for this collection Lauren took a different path, featuring military-influenced styles in khaki fabrics juxtaposed with flowing dresses that strongly resemble the traditional Vietnamese ao dai costume, complete with models styled in conical non la leaf hats. Although

Westwood’s stark wire cage from 1990, for instance, was not so

This collection was shown in Paris beneath the Louvre in the newly renovated Carrousel underground complex, the first time a fashion show had been organized underground. The collection attracted controversy because of three dresses printed with Arabic writing. When clerics in Indonesia protested, Lagerfeld apologized, destroyed the dresses, and asked journalists and photographers not to publish photos of them. The mannequins in this show were not just top models, but celebrities and actresses. Th

A few months after winning France’s prestigious Légion d’Honneur, and the worldwide launch of his highly successful fragrance, Miyake’s spring/summer 1994 collection presented a number of his existing clothing lines alongside his high-end namesake line, Issey Miyake. In a season with a strong emphasis on the body, Miyake’s runway show presented the body in motion—focusing less on the body itself than on the effect of movement created in the clothes. This kind of higher-concept presentation from M

Now synonymous with the actress who wore it, the “Liz Hurley” dress has become entrenched in popular culture. Originally an elite couture object that played with sartorial codes of high and low fashion, the dress was later referenced and imitated countless times. Remarkable for its deconstructed tailoring, which revealed as much as it concealed, this gown married a punk sensibility with red carpet style.
