Genius Derailed

“Tales of success and excess, of artistic genius unbounded and venom unbridled, of tragedy surmounted and succumbed to, are endemic in the worlds of fashion and film and music. One only has to look at the implosion of careers such as Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan and Mel Gibson.” – Hilary Alexander, Fashion columnist for the UK Telegraph.

The presentation of the autumn/winter 2011/12 Dior collection, designed by Galliano, is still scheduled for this Friday at the Musée Rodin. 

When I look at these gowns, it is sad that the House of Dior will no longer have such talent at the helm.  

But then again, no-one is irreplaceable, right?
