Caroline Murray, director of the British Academy of Graphology and AnOther’s resident graphologist, unravels the hidden meaning behind the handwriting styles of fashion notables
A note from John Galliano to editor in chief, Jefferson Hack
The writing portrays a man of passion (carried away stroke). He is tenacious, agile, extremely inventive and he captures all with his vibrant and ardent imagination (lassos, flying strokes, combinations, irregularities, hooks). He has an exuberant and imposing personality (spontaneous movement, lassos, triangles), and is able to see differing opportunities and act upon them with rapidity (irregularity of speed). He is also emotive and sensitive (irregularities in all aspects) and can be impatient, impulsive and sometimes agitated. He probably would not suffer fools gladly. He is a fearless and decisive character who does not want to waste his time (flying strokes, agitated movement) and may be indifferent to the opinions of others (regressive movements). He may not always be objective when considering all elements of a situation (resolute stroke) and may have a tendency towards exaggeration (flying strokes).
The writer is a complex man (irregularities in all categories), hugely creative and sensuous, with a great sense of beauty (extensive movements), though not perhaps in the traditional sense. He has much will power and energy (some dynamic movements) and carries projects through with dash and zeal (exaggerations), enabling his natural creativity full flow.
