Craftsy Fashionistas with a Love of Christian Dior Couture: DIY Your Own Galliano with Gold Spray Paint & the Right Kicks. FASHIONTRIBES FASHION BLOG

Dior_couture_look Christian Dior Couture - Fall 2006

For fashionistas unafraid to take matters into their own hands & make an item of clothing their own, replicating this Christian Dior Couture rock 'n roll glam look is do-able even on the most stretched budget. Besides, anything involving either a glue gun or spray paint is guaranteed hours of fun.

The key purchase is the right oversize fluffy coat. An ostrich feather jacket is a suitably shaggy alternative to the original - simply spray patches with gold spray paint in a repeating grid like the original (and don't stress too much about perfection) and voila! Monsieur Galliano would be proud. Finish off with black leggings, and either black booties or tough buckle shoes & off you go.
