It’s official. Read more here (or anywhere because it’s everywhere). Also, the upcoming shows will go on, with or without him.
It’s unfortunate how things have ended up and it astonishes me that Galliano had these views when previously, he was a gentleman and seemed to be very open about acceptance of diversity. I can’t support his personal choices or opinions, but I do hope he has a rude awakening and decides to better himself.
One of the good and bad things about fashion is that clothes represent the designer and that designer will add his/her own touch. After this situation, it’s a bad thing. I will always admire his past work and influence on the fashion world, he’s one of the reasons, if not the main reason, I became interested in fashion. It is a massive loss for the company and fashion in general, but in the words of my mom, “They can’t just throw his talent away, under a rug.” He deserved to be punished for what he said and Dior handled it understandably, especially after the release of the video. But it’s conflicting, will I continue to support his talent or do I ditch him because of what those clothes represent?
