The corseted bishop from John Galliano’s autumn/winter 2000 “Wedding Portrait” couture collection for Christian Dior.
The silhouette is a direct reference to Dior’s autumn/winter 1952 “Profile” line (the model “La Cigale” is above). A shadow of the past, informing the future. That is what great fashion designers do.
