John Galliano makes a return to fashion with his new appointment as creative director at Maison Martin Margiela. Galliano has been on a three year hiatus since his firing at Dior for making racist and anti-semetic comments at a Paris bar. His intoxicated racial rant went viral at Le Perl bar in 2011 as he heckled and harassed the bars patrons. Some in the fashion industry feel this is a terrible move but other fashion notables such as Kanye West and Anna Wintour praise the appointment.
To get rid of the bad habits Galliano went to rehab for alcohol and prescription pill addiction . ” Margiela is ready for a new charismatic , creative soul said Renzo Rosso , owner of labels such as Diesel , Viktor and Rolf and Maison Martin Margiela. “I couldn’t be happier. For the Maison Margiela, which deserves a new visionary leader; and for John Galliano, who is a talent beyond definition and time. I always believed in brave, unpredictable choices, and this one is no exception. We will write history, and I wanted to make you part of it.” Renzo Rosso .
As everyone , I am very excited to see what Galliano will bring to a label that is known for it’s minimalistic and crisp style.
