High and Low: Galliano

From Fri 08 to Fri 22 Mar
New Releases

Widely recognised as one of the most influential and successful fashion designers of our time, John Galliano dressed the most beautiful and influential people in the world for almost 15 years at Givenchy and Dior. He reinvented the fashion industry by transforming his runway shows into immersive fantasies and helped turn high-fashion from an elitist niche into a multi-billion-dollar global business.

In 2011, Galliano’s career abruptly ended after being caught on video using shocking anti-semitic and racist insults. Through a series of archive footage and interviews, Academy Award-winner® Kevin Macdonald’s film investigates the multiple facets and contradictions of Galliano’s character and the context, including decades of industry pressure and drug and alcohol addiction, that surrounded his downfall and ongoing recovery.
