Call me, maybe...

Oscar dela Renta with models Karlie Kloss and Magdalena Frackowiak,
 New York Fashion Week 2013

The most highly anticipated show at New York Fashion Week, Oscar dela Renta's Ready-To-Wear Fall 2013 collection featuring the handiwork of designer-in-residence, John Galliano, was unveiled on Tuesday the 13th of February.
This collection was definitely made by two designers. I mean it's pretty obvious who made what.  The signature Galliano look is ever so present in the form of dresses cinched at the waist with thin belts, elegant gloves, finger-waved hair and dark eye shadow. 
So what happens to Galliano now? His residency at dela Renta's studio was only supposed to last for three weeks. I think it's kind of Mr. dela Renta to open his studio door to Galliano when, I'm pretty sure, none of the other designers have extended the same courtesy. 
I think it's about time Galliano was forgiven by the fashion world. His genius needs to be seen by us again. Or at least by me anyway. 
Call me, John- I will hire you as my personal dress-maker.
