Dior Brings Back Mrs. Robinson

It's amazing to me how the 1960s have had such a strong influence over designers in the latest seasons.

John Galliano, the fashion director of the Christian Dior label, used his creative talent to seek inspiration from the past when he designed his Fall 2008 runway show in Paris based on the 1967 film "The Graduate."

Not only were the fashions inspired by the hit movie, but the accompanying soundtrack further set up the stage for the models who worked the catwalk in red, pink, lime, fuschia, and mandarin.

There didn't seem to be one creation in the show that would be unwearable. Dior is appealing to a wide audience which hopefully will pay off at the salons. Stats for Retro Fashion Flash Backs Trending: Older & Mild
