“I was absolutely moved to tears, we haven’t seen or experienced anything like this in eons. And, God, is fashion hungry for this. This almost feels like a swansong collection, or at least a culmination of the narrative he’s been weaving these last few years. I’m just lost for any intelligent words right now.” [Mr-Dale]

“I’m still processing and I’m gonna write something proper later but THIS IS AMAZING. FASHION WITH A f*cking CAPITAL F.” [helmutnotdead]

“John Galliano is well and truly in a league of his own. Currently sat watching the live-stream in absolute awe and I’m not even the biggest Galliano stan but I am able to recognize the sheer brilliance of this level of work. The storytelling, the sense of drama, the fantasy, the artistry, the execution… so unbelievably insane.” [vogue28]

“This brought me back to life after having a really tough time lately. Fashion is back!” [sanssoleil]

“God. What a show. Not one collection in the past 10 years in which I actively consumed current fashion media has made me feel such strong emotion or ignite such love for fashion, as this collection did. The clothing is beautiful. So many outstanding garments stayed clearly in my mind, something I don’t experience often when viewing new collections. The shapes and proportions are obviously the most eye catching elements on the initial viewing. Quite spectacular corseting!” [aracic]

“FINALLY! Drama, theater, excess, darkness. I don’t care about Margiela, I want to see Galliano like in his glory days. I’m glad to see his confidence is back.” [FelipeV]

“Pure Galliano quintessence! Fashion with a capital F!” [GivenchyAddict]
