The Tribute Collection is styled by Nom de Plume's head designer Alberto Naselli with characteristica from the past John Galliano collections. The collection is also dedicated to Danish creatives.


The Tribute Collection - Prologue

The John Galliano Tribute Collection is made to honour one of the most flamboyant, imaginative and theatrical haute couture designers of our time. Despite the commotion regarding the anti semitic outburst from the designer that led to his dismissal from the House of Christian Dior and the John Galliano label, we choose to do this tribute collection. Let it be known, that Nom de Plume by A. Naselli dissociate from any anti semitic beliefs.

The Tribute Collection was intended to be a celebration of John Galliano's 50 year Birthday, but since his name is more fragile at the time being, we believe that a tribute collection is needed as a statement to remember what John Galliano did for fashion. And not what he said on a night out on the town, no matter the grave content of his remark.


John Galliano - Juan Carlos Antonio Galliano-Guillén

John Galliano was born on November 28th, 1960. He was born in Gibraltar, and at 6 years of age, he moved to England. He later started at the famous Design school Central Saint Martins of Art and Design, from which he graduated in 1984.

Since then, he has been doing fantastic shows in London and Paris for his own label. In 1995, he was hired as head designer at Givenchy, where he showed his signature matador hat. This piece was also present in collections for Fashion House Chistian Dior, where he replaced Gianfranco Ferre in 1996. John Galliano designed the beautiful 50th Anniversary haute couture collection for Christian Dior in 1997, which is remembered by fashion enthusiasts worldwide.
