Oh No! The fashion gods have abandoned us! According to the NY Times and other credible sources the rumors are true. Our beloved John Galliano got a little bit crazy and as result Christian Dior has suspended the ever talented John Galliano from his position at the coveted house.
On February 24th, 2011 John Galliano was arrested in Paris for making an anti-semitic rant and verbally assaulting a woman at an outdoor cafe. The city of love and light was full of dark clouds, Galliano was given a breathalizer and tested at around 1.01. Not good.
The House of Dior, who has a no tolerance policy made a statement today confirming the news.“Dior affirms with the utmost conviction its policy of zero tolerance towards any antisemitic or racist words or behavior, pending the results of the inquiry, Christian Dior has suspended John Galliano from his responsibilities.” The statement was made by Sidney Toledano, the Chief Executive for Dior.
Let’s hope that this mess gets sorted out and that our beloved Galliano can get back to work on taking us away to magical places on the runway, not the slammer.
