Doctored with cigarette burns and jaundiced film reel for a straight-from-the-archive-shelf charm, this excluive film created by legendary fashion designer John Galliano lets us in on his creative secrets in this exclusive video created for SHOWstudio just days before his Autumn/Winter 2007 collection hit the catwalk.
With model Morgane Dubled starring as la merveilleuse ingénue and Monsieur Galliano himself as the eponymous mauvais garcon, witness the creative process of the atelier in all its histrionic glory.
This self-effacing film re-enacts the common mythologies that enshroud the figure of the fashion designer as a fastidious creator of clothing and fantasy. Toying with many of these received ideas, the film is made in the parodic style that Monsieur Galliano does better than anyone else, at the same time capturing the archaic elegance and effervescent joie de vivre that has always entranced his audience, and made his clothing so very wonderful.
