John Galliano will think twice next time you go to have a drink, and now has jumped the news that his own firm also has been fired. Despite having its own name, the company owned, in 91%, the group Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMH). About a month ago, the Sun newspaper published a video which saw Gibraltar designer in a high state of intoxication making derogatory remarks, racist and antisemitic to several guests at the Parisian brasserie 'La perle'.
The consequences were immediate: Natalie Portman refused to wear a dress from Dior on the red carpet at the Oscars 2011, the French company acted quickly and decided to dispense with his services , and about a week ago we learned that Kate Moss was not to wear a dress from it for their wedding day . The designer faces 6 months in jail and fined € 25,000.
It seems the fashion world is falling into a deep crisis: these acts are sum the fall of Christophe Decarnin to Balmain, and complaints from Christian Louboutin for Yves Saint Laurent by using the same color shoe leather in several of their models. The big question we still have is: who will take his place in Christian Dior?
