John Galliano took film noir as his starting point and wholeheartedly storyboarded and architected a wardrobe fit for every situation a femme fatale might fall into. A 40s inspired trenchcoat and doctors' bag opens the scene and this then progresses into shorter frou frou skirts and dresses in lame and satin. Then there's the big underwear as outerwear story running through the middle of the show with everything from babydoll negligees to corsetry. Finally it was a series of sheer floor length seductive dresses in bright colours that stole and closed the show.
