John Galliano Verdict:
After months a gossip, and front-page headline accusations, the verdict is in, John Galliano was found guilty by a Parisian Judge this morning. He was convicted of making anti-Semitic remarks at a Paris cafe months ago. So what does this mean for one this centuries most brilliant designers?
- “I have an addiction. I am currently undergoing treatment.”
He also opened up about the possible causes for his addictions implying that he was overworked, stressed, and was not able to mourn the loss of his friend and colleague, Steven Robinson, who passed in 2007.
While it is a relief that the trial and this ordeal is over, (in a sense) one can only hope that Galliano will be afforded the opportunities to put this sordid affair behind him. He is after all, a talented man that cracked under pressure.
