This truly is the end of an era and just days before the Christian Dior show at Paris Fashion Week (drama anyone!?)
…But, this is fashion and the show MUST go on so who’s next for the top spot at Dior?!
The bookies are currently favouring Stefano Pilati (rumoured to be leaving YSL after 9 years in the top job) – followed by former YSL designer and photographer Hedi Limane, with Dior Homme Creative Director Kris Van Assche in third.
But who do you think should take the CD crown from one of the most creatively brilliant designers of recent decades?! The race is officially on.
LVMH Ditches Galliano from Post at Dior
This is the famous video of famed designer John Galliano making disturbing comments re: anti-semitism. As a result of this horrible display of behavior and irresponsability on Mr. Galliano ‘s part LVMH (owner of the Christian Dior label and Galliano’s boss) has decided to fire the British born designer.
Dior Chief Executive Sidney Toledano said the “odious nature” of Galliano’s comments and behavior on the video led Dior to relieve Galliano of his duties after 15 years as the label’s chief designer and just three days before Dior’s catwalk show at Paris Fashion Week.
“I very firmly condemn what was said by John Galliano, which totally contradicts the values which have always been defended by Christian Dior,” Toledano said in a statement. http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20110301/en_nm/us_dior_galliano
