Dior Breaks Up with John Galliano
With their show for Paris Fashion Week being this Friday, Dior sure has their work set out for them… According to WWD, the fashion house has cut all ties with and fired star designer, John Galliano. These actions, according to the house, are to go into effect immediately.
Dior’s president and chief executive officer, Sidney Toledano said, “We unequivocally condemn the statements made by John Galliano which are in total contradiction to the longstanding core values of Christian Dior.” This comes just one day after a video of Galliano professing his love for Hitler went viral on the internet and a few days after he was accused of verbal assault and anti-Semitism by another couple. Additionally, actress Natalie Portman, a face for Parfums Christian Dior, has publicly denounced Galliano and disassociated herself from him.
But like all things, the show must go on and according to WWD, it is believed Dior will present this Friday in Paris.
