News just broke from Paris, that visionary designer extraordinaire, John Galliano has been suspended from his job as creative director of Christian Dior for an ALLEGED anti-semetic remark aimed at a couple in a Parisian cafe this past Thursday night. He was subsequently detained by police, released and then pretty much immediately suspended from Dior. The brand’s Chief Executive, Sidney Toledano said in a statement:
“Dior affirms with the utmost conviction its policy of zero tolerance towards any antisemitic or racist works or behaviour. Pending the results of the inquiry, Christian Dior has suspended John Galliano from his responsibilities.”
We can only hope that this isn’t true, as it would hugely affect the fashion world’s opinion on one of history’s greatest designers.
