John Galliano sacked following racist outburst

John Galliano has been fired from his position as head designer at Christian Dior, after The Sun newspaper released a video of the designer making racist comments in a Paris bar last week. (You can view the video here, but be prepared to hear some frankly abhorrent views from Galliano.)

Speculation mounts as to who will take over the reins at Dior: meanwhile, the brand’s Fall 2011 will be shown as planned at Paris Fashion Week this Friday, as will Galliano’s own collection, which will show on Sunday. No comment yet as to whether the designer will take his customary stroll down the runway at the end of the show, though…

The fashion and celebrity world has been reacting to the news all day, with Patricia Field releasing a statement in support of Galliano (possibly not her wisest move ever) and Dior ambassador Natalie Portman condemning him.
