John Galliano Out at His Own Company

April 15, 2011 • Fashion


Not even rehab could help John Galliano from his plight.

After being fired from Christian Dior for his ant-semitic remarks made in a cafe last month, the designer has also been fired from the fashion company that bears his own name. Currently, Galliano is set to stand trial on a charge of public insult at the High Court, which is expected on May 12 to set the date for the proceedings. The designer could face months in prison and a fine of over $30,000.

It is understood the in-house design team at John Galliano, which shares members with Dior’s, will be charged with producing collections with a pre-Spring collection already in the works without the now infamous designer.

Though Christian Dior SA, which owns 91 percent of the Galliano house, has received unsolicited expressions of interest in the business from several of its Italian licensing partners, there are no plans to sell at this moment.
