The designer is fired from his line after his anti-Semitic remarks earlier this year.
The British-born designer – who was
sacked from French couture house Christian Dior after going on an anti-Semitic rant in a Parisian cafe during which he said he loved Adolf Hitler – has now also been removed from his post at his self-titled business after the board met and decided to eject him. Christian Dior, which owns 91 per cent of Galliano’s business, has now received expression of interest from a number of companies interested in purchasing it. The current in-house design team for the brand is being charged with creating a new collection and is already working on a
pre-spring collection. John Galliano’s show at
Paris Fashion Week earlier this year was axed at the last minute following the anti-Jewish rant.
