John Galliano arrested for assault, suspended by Dior

John Galliano has been in trouble with The Fashion Police a few times now, but today it’s the real-life police the designer has to worry about, after being arrested in Paris for an alleged assault, during which Galliano is also accused of making antisemitic remarks.

Dior have suspended their head designer in the wake of his arrest, with Chief Executive Sidney Toledano saying:

“Dior affirms with the utmost conviction its policy of zero tolerance towards any antisemitic or racist words or behaviour. Pending the results of the inquiry Christian Dior has suspended John Galliano from his responsibilities.”

    I support this decision!
    I am so confused by the daisies on the brim of his hat. They look so fresh and sweet, while the rest of him is so dark and overdone! Confusion!!!!

    under his design tenure at major couture company, wasn’t it ADDICTED, the name of the first perfume creation? And isn’t it a word coming from the junky world? Now we may witness the cost of that delirious time when financial men try to convince the rest of us a junky can run the show.Basta? We say in italian.
