It’s Official: John Galliano Joins Margiela

The rumors are indeed true. John Galliano, fashion’s most controversial designer, is taking over creative direction at Maison Martin Margiela. He will take over the design leadership of the fashion house’s lines, including couture and women’s and men’s ready-to-wear collections. His first designs will be seen in January during Paris Couture Week. “Margiela is ready for a new charismatic creative soul. John Galliano is one of the greatest, undisputed talents of all time- a unique, exceptional couturier for a maison that always challenged and innovated the world of fashion. I look forward to his return to create that fashion dream that only he can create, and wish him to here find his new home,” said Renzo Rosso, president of Margiela’s parent company OTB. Galliano has been lying low since being fired from both Dior and his signature fashion house in 2011.

Chanel Planning Salzburg Show

Karl Lagerfeld will stage his next Métiers d’art collection for Chanel in Salzburg, Austria at an 18th-century Rococo palace. Chanel’s Métiers d’art shows are held in cities that are important to the fashion house’s history. Chanel recently traveled to Dallas and Edinburgh for shows.

Ralph Lauren Starts Pink Pony Fund

Ralph Lauren is launching its Pink Pony Fund with a social media campaign. To help fight cancer and spread awareness, the brand will donate $10 every time someone shares their personal message and a picture using the hashtag #PinkPonyPromise on Instagram, Twitter or ralphlauren.com this month. The brand’s goal is to reach $1 million in donations by the end of the week. Ralph Lauren will also donate an extra dollar for each friend tagged in a photo on Instagram or Twitter. Donations will go to the Ralph Lauren Center for Cancer Care and Prevention and the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
