***UPDATED***Dior: Tweets from the front row

“There is more to Dior than Galliano” said a Tweet from the front row of today’s Dior show, which opened with Dior boss Sidney Toledano making a surprise speech before the show began.

According to the BBC World News Twitter feed, Toledano stepped out on to the catwalk before the show started, and said that Galliano’s alleged anti-Semitic remarks were “disgraceful”.

The catwalk show then began and featured barely-there lace dresses and tuelle, knickerbockers, drop-waist dresses, feminine frills and khaki overcoats. The collection came in a palette of plum, khaki, powder blue and sage green. Thick wool socks were rolled down to the ankle and teamed with heeled ankle boots, while wide-brim hats also featured.

After the finale, the entire Dior atelier - some 40 people in white coats - walked out onto the catwalk to take a bow, to the whoops and cheers of the audience who gave the staff, and the collection a standing ovation.
