Mr Galliano was noticably absent from the Parisian presentation that unvieled his latest A/W11 collection. He is supposedly in a clinic recieving treament. If you still for some reason dont know what the full story, John Galliano was videoed expressing racist remarks to some unknown customers in a restaurant in Paris Central. This was then leaked and since then has made his role of Creative Fashion Director at Christian Dior extinct.
The president of Christian Dior Couture, Sidney Toledano, was among the audience for Sunday night’s showing of the Galliano collection. Toledano had said before the Dior catwalk show last Friday that it had “been deeply painful to see the Dior name associated with the disgraceful statements attributed to its designer, however brilliant he may be.”
The intimate presentation, held in a flower and antique-strewn mansion in the Avenue Foch, recalled the glory days of Galliano’s early years in Paris.
According to the Telegraph, the models strolled across Turkish carpets in hourglass tweed and wool suiting, fringed and trimmed with fur and accessorised with feathered head-pieces; cashmere cocoon coats with stitched, satin hems; and open-back, printed silk shirts, tucked into draped pencil skirts, lavished with bows on one side.
