John Galliano, a chief designer of Dior, born in 1960, Gibraltar. He was born to a Spanish mother and Gibraltarian father, and Spanish heritage remains an integral part of Galliano’s life and work. He lived in Gibraltar for six years, and then in 1966, he and his family moved to London. A cultural shock immediately impacted him. He went to school in London but wasn’t a outstanding in his school until he went to a design school where he belonged more. A very important thing that affected his whole life is his graduation collection, Les Incroyables’, of Central Saint Martins. By Galliano’s talents and efforts, his graduation collection received huge approval.
