THE FASHION WEEK EMERGENCY!
With Galliano's Dior show scheduled to be on March 4, the designer is experiencing a new form of stress other then getting prepared for fashion week.
Due to anti-Semitic statements Galliano "has stated" to an elderly Jewish couple, the designer was fired from Dior and arrested for future investigation. Although these claims were made, I find it ironic that Galliano lives in French capital's Marais district - the traditional home of the city's Jewish community.
“Dior affirms with the utmost conviction its policy of zero tolerance towards any antisemitic or racist words or behaviour. Pending the results of the inquiry, Christian Dior has suspended John Galliano from his responsibilities.”
Galliano is “shocked that Dior suspended him from his job functions pending the outcome of the police investigation.”
Roberto Cavalli says "John, I'm with you!"
Hilary Alexander's brief video interview with Vogue Italia's Franca Sozzani. Sozzani says Dior should either fire him or keep him, but that it would be a shame for Christian Dior to lose Galliano.
Coming from a pacifist artist like himself, I find these claims to be quite suspicious.
He was drunk, and therefore I feel like I can't take any of his words seriously because that's the way people act under the influence of alcohol.
