John Galliano’s replacement at Dior still on hold

Weeks after Galliano’s very public split with Dior, no replacement has been confirmed for his position at the top fashion house.

We all know from the AW11 show that Dior has a large team behind the legendary name, but the fashion world still waits with bated breath to find out who will be taking the lead.

Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci has been all but confirmed as the new creative head, prompting a domino fall of speculations as to who would then fill his empty shoes at Givenchy.

However, all parties involved refuse to confirm the rumours, and it emerged this week that Dior may not announce the name of their new creative director for many months.

Speculation is rife as to why the announcement has been so delayed, with legal issues over Galliano’s contract, and a fear that the new collection would be overshadowed by the scandal, being cited as reasons for the delay.

Either way, we know that the pressure will be on the new creative head to produce the spectacular collections Dior is known for. We continue to watch and wait for the announcement of the year.

Mulberry introduces the Jewelled Lily

This week Mulberry announced the release of their new Jewelled Lily. Exclusive for SS11, this update on the classic Lily bag offers all the plus points of the bag we know and love – with a very fashion twist.

The beautiful embellished gem is fresh for spring and combines the perfect mini bag size with the flexibility to be worn as a clutch or shoulder bag. The sparkling revamp comes in the shape of a shower of 3000 show stopping Swarovski crystals.

Handmade in the UK, the bespoke beauty differs with each piece, guaranteeing the wearer a taste of haute couture history. Its unique craftsmanship, spring-like warm golden tones and delicate feminine crystals guarantee it to be a sure fire hit with the fash-pack, as well as securing its position as this season’s must have.

As much as this striking bag packs a punch, so does the price tag – it will set you back an astonishing £3,500. With the classic Lily retailing at around £500, is this glam treat worth the extra, or worth it at all? TELLUS what you think!

Big changes for Fashion House LVMH

Just as Paris Fashion week was kicking off to a great start, news breaks that head designer one the of the fashion house’s biggest names –  Dior – is sacked from the company. Last Thursday John Galliano was accused of anti-semitic and racial abuse and these charges have now been filed according to the Telegraph. This is extremely disappointing news for avid fashion lovers like us here at TellusFashion, Galliano was a fashion master and there was no-one who could do Haute Couture quite like him. I applaud Dior however, as no-one should be given a second chance after doing such things – its truely disgusting.

Someone has got some big boots to fill – who do you think could be in the running for the job and how do you all feel about the recent events at Dior?!

For a man who has such talent and has created some of the most saught after pieces for Dior since 1996, its a big waste. Lets take a look at some of his work over the past few weeks below..
