Who is wondering about the future of Dior and about the fame and infamy that is now John Galliano.
Galliano was a true talent, who had vision and created shows of fantasy and beauty. Even Galliano's personal lines were spunky, youthful, and full of imagination and freshness. Dior though clearly inaccessible and unwearable to the majority of the public was none-the-less a house of success in terms of fashion inspiration while under Gallianos direction. Dior, in my personal opinion, is now in shambles while its proprietors scramble to collect all the pieces and put them meticulously back together in a hurry.
Raf Simmons was recently made artistic director at Dior and I have high hopes, but even higher expectations, for him as he replaces Galliano creative shadow.
Unfortunately, Galliano did make the terrible mistake of blurting out antisemitic comments that infuriated the entire fashion community and millions worldwide. Hence his release from Dior and from his own brand. And this is where my favorite question arises. Is it is fashion sacrilege not only to by Galliano but Dior by Galliano? Is his name so besmirched that all his work is now condemned with him?
Leave your opinion in the comments. I'd love to hear other peoples thoughts on the subject.
