Paris, France (AHN Entertainment) – After being sacked from French haute couture label Christian Dior, shamed designer John Galliano has been let go from his eponymous label. The British fashion designer, who worked as the fashion house’s head designer from 1996 until his dismissal last month, was also sacked from the John Galliano label, which is 91 percent owned by Dior.
He was dismissed from Christian Dior last month after a video surfaced online of him drunkenly hurling anti-Semitic rants at people, and declaring “I love Hitler.” He was also arrested in a separate incident over an alleged anti-Semitic tirade in a Paris bar.
Now, the board of the John Galliano label has reportedly decided to fire him as well.
His replacement hasn’t been mentioned, but according to WWD, via Huffington Post, “It is understood that the in-house design team at John Galliano, which shares members with Dior’s, will be charged with producing collections at a house prized for bias-cut dresses, newspaper prints and retro-tinged tailoring.”
“A pre-spring collection is already said to be in the works.”
Galliano has just finished an “intensive” one-month stint at an Arizona rehab, and is in “after care.”
