Let’s take a look at the Best of 2011 Fashion. It’s been an intense year, marked by key personalities.

He was a genius, and he still is, but he blew it. Following a drunken racist outburst filmed at a Paris bistro, John Galliano was instantly fired.
Tunis hosted its third Fashion Week. Young fashion designers find the Arab Spring inspiring.

Her name means After a storm comes a calm. At 4, she fled Beijing for France, as a stowaway. Like Balenciaga or Dior, Yiqing Yin hand stitches traditional fabric using a needle and thread.
