The John Galliano Fall/Winter 2016 show was certainly an eye catcher. Milan had prepared us for the introduction of Gothic traits this season but creative director, Bill Gaytten took this look one step further with the introduction of  severe military pieces combined with the utmost of femininity as seen above with silky pink dress combined with thick military style jacket.John Galliano PFW Fall 2016Pretty in pink, extremely feminine lines here, soft lingerie type fabric teamed with boots taking the boring right out of pretty.
