|John Galliano at Christian Dior's Spring/Summer 2011 runway|
John Galliano, who was once the head designer for Dior, is set to return back to the industry he belongs – fashion of course. In the mid of 2011, he was fired for a racial comment he had made at a French café. Many believed he wouldn’t ever make it back to the fashion industry, but Friday morning there was a surprise for everyone. Oscar de la Renta announced he would have John Galliano assisting him in his studio for the next few weeks that are left of his New York Fashion Week preparations. We are thrilled to see Galliano’s comeback, which we hope is for a long time.
For those who are not familiar with Galliano, he was a designer worth watching. He reinvented the house of Dior, and took it to another level that had both a dream and a story to anything he designed while working for the house. He set different codes which weren’t too familiar to the original brand, but his magic and dedication had everyone indulge into the new Dior. This is why several weren’t pleased with Raf Simons debut, which actually followed more of the original standard codes of the brand (we thought it was an intricate modern twist coming from Simons; not bad). John Galliano is reported to serve as some aid in Oscar de la Renta’s upcoming fall collection. We don’t know if de la Renta is using marketing skills to attract us, but his show has become one of our priorities to watch next month. We wonder how well are two sensations going to work together.
Below are some of Galliano's past collections while at Dior. If anything, haute couture was what he mastered. Designers nowadays make couture seem like another ready-to-wear than what we experienced at Dior with John Galliano.
