Despite the fact that John Galliano was found guilty of making anti-Semitic slurs, many people within the fashion industry are saying the couturier will make a comeback.
The latest person to voice their support for the designer is actress Eva Green, who told Vogue UK, "He will make a comeback, I just know it." This comes after a string of big-name
industry players have come out to show their support. When asked whether or not Galliano could come back to fashion, Dior's current head designer (and long-time Galliano collaborator) Bill Gaytten told the Financial Times, "We’ll see. It’s not over until it’s over. I can’t say any more than that right now.” As for Vogue Italy's always-provocative Editor in Chief Franca Sozzani, she bluntly told The Daily Beast that Dior should, “Hire John Galliano back."
Two and a half years after being let go from Dior and his namesake label, John Galliano has yet to land at any permanent position. He was rumored to be teaching, but Parsons cancelled his scheduled workshop. There are rumors he may design costumes for a West End production. But so far his strongest re-entrance to the fashion world has been his three-week stint with Oscar de la Renta. And WWD is now reporting that Galliano is in talks to continue his relationship with the New York-based designer... maybe permanently.
