John Galliano Has Been Dismissed From Dior

What a hectic couple of days its been for Designer John Galliano, he was arrested for his anti-semitic rant at a bar in Paris Marais district last Thursday. Because of his unfortunate behaviour Galliano has been fired from Fashion house Dior.

Having said racist comments to couple Geraldine Bloch and partner Philippe Virgiti, and then a video surfacing where Galliano made other remarks when he was drunk, didn't really help his case, as its caused him to first be suspended then fired by Christian Dior Fashion house and only days before Galliano was meant to show his latest Fall/Winter 2012 collection at Paris Fashion Week.

As much as I don't agree with whatever Galliano said he was drunk at the time and mistakes happen. Dismissing Galliano will be a great loss to Dior, lets not forget how extremely creative and talented Galliano is. To be honest one of the reason's I couldn't wait to see Paris Fashion Week especially Haute Couture Week was for the Dior show by Galliano. Whoever will replace being creative director at Dior has big boots to fill, rumour has it Lanvin's Alber Elbaz, Christian Lacroix and Haider Ackermann are being suggested. Otherwise I wonder if John Galliano will still design for his own line Galliano?

Being drunk should be no excuse for acting in a abusive and racist manner. Dior was right to dismiss him. There are lots of talented designers out there which I am sure will be intelligent enough not only to create beautiful clothes for people but to respect people aswell.

I completely agree with you.
You cant fire somebody because he said "I love ...". You make a lot of jokes when you are drunk. I personally am against racism regardless of the race but these days some issues are more sensitive and I don't know why!Ohhh, I don't really want to go there!
I think it is a big loss for Dior.

There is no excuse to be abusive in anyway. Dior had a decision to make. Whether Galliano was harshly punished or got what he deserves, he still has remarkable talent and will be missed...
