A standing ovation

We are not strangers to the idea that the fashion industry is an eat or be eaten one.
In this process of Darwinism designers need to evolve and embrace new concepts in order to stay in the lime light.
Fashion, rather than commercial means is a form of artistic expression, and a fashion show is well.. as SHOW were a designer's wildest dreams come true.
..and nobody puts on a show better than John Galliano for Christian Dior's Fashion House.
I looked over a decade of Haute Couture shows by Monsieur Galliano and noticed that he truly is a master of design as an art form. His shows are not only about beautiful garments but also embrace different themes.
Here are my findings, along with the names I gave each show.
