PARIS — Imagining high fashion without its fabulous fabrics is like thinking about a peacock without its dazzling feathers, and much of the magic from the fall couture collections presented here last week came from the materials.
“To do a collection without the right fabrics is as absurd as a painter creating a canvas without any oils,” said John Galliano, who dedicated Christian Dior’s fall couture collection to flowers of every variety. “Fabrics are developed, dyed and chosen especially for each design and collection we work on. From Mr. Dior to today, the designs come to life with the fabrics we chose.”
