John Galliano makes his return...

John Galliano is set to make his return...

The British born designer is set to make his return to the fashion world, with a temporary stay at Oscar De La Renta's studio in New York City. 

In March 2011 John Galliano was fired from the House of Dior, after an incident that took place in a Paris cafe, where Galliano was caught and recorded making anti-Semitic expressing to customers. This spread worldwide, celebrities that had previously trusted in Galliano's work and wore his pieces with pride, were disappointed and disgusted by his behavior. The house of Dior took quick action in cutting John Galliano from their team, to protect the respect of their brand. 

The fashion world knew that they were loosing a true master-mind, with his amazing innovated designers and constant surprise of style. Since he joined Christian Dior in 1996 Galliano undeniably made his mark on the industry, transforming the way in which Dior Haute Couture was presented, with unforgettable drama and theatrical dazzle. His flair was most definitely iconic, a huge fan of his work, I was truly devastated and disappointed by the way he departed from the industry. 

After a much needed break from the fashion industry, Galliano has decided that 2013 is his year to return. He has confirmed that he will spend the next three weeks with Oscar De La Renta as he prepares for his upcoming New York Fashion Week show.

Oscar De La Renta has expressed that "John and I have known each other for many years and I am a great admirer of his talent. He has worked long and hard on his recovery and I am happy to give him the opportunity to re-immerse himself in the world of fashion and re-acclimate in an environment where he has been so creative."

Galliano has previous told WWD that he is an alcoholic. He has spent the last 2 years in recovery, he has said that it was the disease that caused his outburst in Paris. He has tried to apologise for his words and the hurt he has caused to the Jewish community, and wishes to try and amend all that he has done. 

I was overly ecstatic about this news, I knew there would come a time when John Galliano would return to the fashion world offering us once again his magic and creative aptitude... Excited to see what he comes up with next! -★

"I am grateful to Oscar beyond words for inviting me to spend time with him in the familiar surroundings of a design studio, His support and faith in me is humbling" John Galliano.
