Join author Kerry Taylor for this Thursday evening talk, as she explores the life and career of four times British Designer of the Year, John Galliano. From shy St Martins student to internationally renowned fashion designer – the creative genius of John Galliano as told through his clothes. Throughout a tumultuous career, his catalogue of work has remained extraordinary. Drawing on her experience as head of an auction house, Taylor will also give advice on dating, labelling and building a collection.

Galliano – Spectacular Fashion, published by Bloomsbury, £45, features never-before-seen images of rare designs, close-ups of the exquisite detail and catwalk images showing the garments in action. Accompanying the vivid images are exclusive interviews with Galliano himself as well as those who worked closely with him throughout his career. The meticulously researched book looks in depth at John Galliano’s collections from his 1984 graduate show at Saint Martins to his reemergence on to the international fashion scene at Maison Margiela in 2015.

Kerry Taylor has four decades of experience working in auction houses, becoming Sotheby’s youngest auctioneer in the company’s history aged just 21. She was responsible for re-establishing auctions of costume and textiles there and oversaw such high-profile sales as the wardrobes of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and Maria Callas. In 2003, she left Sotheby’s to start Kerry Taylor Auctions, an auction house that specialises in fashion (historical and designer) and textiles. Kerry is a world-leading authority on vintage fashion and in 2007, the Guardian voted her one of their ‘Women of the Year’. Galliano: Spectacular Fashion is Taylor’s second book, after Vintage Fashion & Couture: From Poiret to McQueen, 2013.
