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?
