Pin ItI don’t follow fashion, so I cannot speak authoritatively on this subject. However, it seems to me that the Geisha theme does often crop up at these shows. Note this from January 2007 at Style.com:
What psychological process did it take to lift John Galliano to the extraordinary place of brilliance he reached—or rather, rediscovered—in his Spring couture? Everything about the Dior collection—inspired, he said, “by Pinkerton’s affair with Cio-Cio San, Madame Butterfly”—reconfirmed his unique talent to evoke beauty, sensitivity, narrative, and emotion in a fashion show. Kimonos, obis, and geisha makeup were Dior-ified, transformed into delicate translations of New Look peplum suits and full-skirted dance dresses. Each look sprouted yet more miraculous planes of origami folding, their stiff geometries creating necklines like flowers or hovering birds. Every dress had an intense color and character of its own; a hot pink, an eau-de-nil with coral, cascading shades of burgundy and imperial purple. Some were painted, others sculpted from curviform furls of woven straw….
And from August 2010 there is this report at Trend Hunter: Geisha-Inspired Makeup Ads.
That latter article was sub-titled “The Karlie Kloss Dior Fall/Winter 2010 Campaign is Alluring.” I am so beyond knowing aught of fashion that I fell to researching if Karlie Kloss Dior was related to Christian Dior before learning that the reference was to Karlie Kloss (evidently a model) and Christian Dior the designer.
Anyway, that being the case, this May 6 (2012) post edit will now include other website references that may merit inclusion beneath the term “Christian Dior Geisha” — enjoy:
