The consequences of John Galliano’s public insult will influence his life for long. He has been fired from Christian Dior and is currently waiting for a trial. And yesterday it was reported that the designer was dismissed from his position at John Galliano label.
John Galliano’s board decided it would be hard for the label to keep the designer due to his present reputation. Christian Dior, which owns 91 percent of the Galliano house, has been offered to sell the company. They have received several expressions of interest from Italian licensing partner Ittierre, a Chinese group and a firm from the Middle East. But so far the sale of the label is not considered.
John Galliano, the designer, has already completed an “intensive” treatment course at an Arizona rehab center. He is now in extended “aftercare.” It's sad to see someone who is so brilliant in the fashion world come crashing down into a pit of disaster.
