John Galliano's Dior Runway Show for Fall 2009

— July 7, 2009 — Fashion
John Galliano's Fall 2009 couture show for Dior seemed to draw inspiration from gay fashion icon Lady Gaga.

Many of the models were sent down the runway without pants; in fact, plenty of them had their garter stockings in full view.

Overall, the clothing was colorful and pretty with beautiful detailing - at least where there was clothing.

Implications - It goes without failure, if you want to find a way to attract a crowd simply "drop trou," meaning take off your trousers. These pant-less outfits are actually quite the eye catching get ups with bright hued tops making up for the lack of bottoms. Although Lady Gaga could probably wear these out in public, are average women also brave enough to go without pants?
Trend Themes
1. Pant-less Outfits - Disruptive innovation opportunity: Designing bold and colorful tops to compensate for the lack of bottoms, appealing to those looking for unique and attention-grabbing fashion choices.
2. Visible Garter Stockings - Disruptive innovation opportunity: Creating stylish and decorative garter stockings that are meant to be displayed, offering a new way for individuals to express their fashion sense and add a touch of vintage glamour to their outfits.
3. Influence of Lady Gaga - Disruptive innovation opportunity: Collaborating with pop culture icons like Lady Gaga to create fashion-forward collections that push boundaries and cater to the avant-garde tastes of consumers.
Industry Implications
1. Fashion - Disruptive innovation opportunity: Developing unconventional and boundary-pushing designs that challenge traditional fashion norms and inspire individuals to embrace their unique style.
2. Accessories - Disruptive innovation opportunity: Designing innovative and visually appealing garter stockings that become a statement piece and add an element of intrigue to accessories collections.
3. Celebrity and Entertainment - Disruptive innovation opportunity: Partnering with influential celebrities like Lady Gaga to create fashion lines that capture the essence of their personal style, appealing to devoted fans and trendsetters alike.
