Galliano designed Nicole Kidman’s chinoiserie chartreuse gown for the 69th Academy Awards in 1997.

John Galliano Paris

Galliano’s financial agreement with Amor expired in 1993, and he did not have a performance in October, thus missing the season. Galliano was introduced to Portuguese socialite and fashion patron So Schlumberger and financial backers of venture firm Arbela Inc, John Bult, and Mark Rice, with the help of American Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and André Leon Talley, then European correspondent at Vanity Fair. Galliano received the financial backing and high society stamp of approval he needed in Paris as a result of this collaboration. This collection was significant in Galliano’s development as a fashion house, and it is regarded as a “fashion moment” in high fashion circles.
