The Andre Galliano Haute Couture line was established
in the year 2015, after being A model for many years I was trying to find
A way To do something I really wanted to be good at I had already been a model a fashion booker for modeling agencies a record producer back stage manager
A stylist for designers back stage I still wasn’t fulfilled my first attempt at being A
designer was making T shirts and sweat pants I still wasn’t happy
so I awoke one day and was praying for god to show me what Is my purpose for being on this earth what I should I be doing finally the next day I started having some
dreams About fabrics and patterns and seeing my self-cut and drape fabric
so I went out and brought A mannequin and started pinning clothes on it
draping I said to myself I can do this I watched all the designers I worked with do it why Can’t I, I said to myself so I made my first piece for A collection it was A pair of underwear’s,
it was very hard to do as I was not really good at sewing so I befriended A few seamstresses that would teach me how to sew and cut and pin and drape from that day on I put lots of hours in learning how to cut and pin and drape and sew its now the thing that mostly grounds me in my life I put all my feelings and emotions into my clothing
its as if I have a bond and the fabrics speak to me when I go to A fabric store
its sure all I can’t believe how I am able to just go to A fabric store and walk to A roll of fabric and it speaks to me honestly I love what I do I am inspired by peace nature
the goodness of mankind everything that has to do with the elements we draw inspiration from lakes streams trees we all should be one with mother nature
its my biggest inspiration that I draw all my energy from and thats how I make my clothes and themes I draw the inspirations from different time period eras and the elements Thank You World Liberty Tv team always for your support I am always honored to work with you, I cherish our working relationship and I look forward to continue working with and supporting World Liberty TV, Dr Abbey and the world Liberty TV Team Andre Galliano.

Many contemporary fashion designs incorporate such timeless Chinese elements as dragons, calligraphy, and Buddhas. But what can this rich and ancient culture offer in addition to those exotic elements? Can traditional oriental culture bring a new spirit to modern fashion?
China is comprised of many different ethnicities, but Han culture has been the most prevalent since ancient times. Han Couture consists of the clothing worn by ethnic Hans, as well as those whom they inspired, from thousands of years ago up until the end of the Ming Dynasty in the 17th century. The defining characteristics of Han Couture are its unique collars and lapels; wide, flowing sleeves; and the use of a sash in place of buttons. The look is refined, reserved, and noble, rendered in the finest fabrics, often with exquisite embroidered details and other embellishments.
Clothing and accessories of Han Couture are inseparable from the semi-divine culture of China. The Buddhist and Daoist belief in maintaining harmony between Heaven and mankind was reflected in every aspect of society including clothing and style. Han Couture reached its peak in the Tang, Song and Ming Dynasties, with Chinese culture absorbing aspects from other regions and with different countries being highly influenced by Chinese culture. For example, today’s Japanese kimono and Korean hanbok still retain features of Tang Dynasty dress.
