So with legal action being taken by both Galliano (To get his job back) and Dior (LVMH) (To get rid of Galliano) we are all really convinced that the brilliant man who has a lot of problems will be out a job.
There are rumors flying around that the tortured yet brilliant mind, John Galliano was framed because the house of Dior wanted to get rid of a him due to his non-stop fabuleux designs regardless of stock market turmoil or Global Peace. If these rumors are true I say Shame on you Dior, John Galliano is one designer that takes us away from the everyday and places us on a pedestal which resides above the dirt of the everyday. A Christian Dior Couture gown takes you to a place of pure inspiration and beauty. Galliano made Dior art.
- This coming from the guy sitting at his computer writing to you who just so happens to be wearing a John Galliano Shirt from his Ready-To-Wear Collection. hmmmmm perhaps a bit biased?
But after all… every good thing must come to an end, even if only to be reborn again into something changed and new. So who will it be? Who will change the face of Christian Dior? Most votes are for Riccardo Tisci within the LVMH family at Givenchy. His outlandish styles and attention to detail make him an obvious choice.
Then again Peter Copping has blown critics out of the water for Nina Ricci and continues to grow that amazing and delicate line. Dior would be a huge jump in responsibilities and notoriety, in fact I’m positive he would jump on the opportunity if it presented itself.
My last option (as in third choice) is Phoebe Philo at Celine. I seriously don’t think she has what it takes to be the embodiment of one of histories great houses. just my opinion but… I am sticking to it. Dior needs fire and flame, not matte simplicity or more pebbled leather.
Great people were Dior. Red carpets are MADE for Dior. The designer for Dior must reflect this majesty and OWN it!
