John Galliano, the label, may exist, but it is without its namesake creative director. The fallen designer has been unceremoniously booted from his own company.
Christian Dior SA owns 91% of the company and clearly wants nothing more to do with John Galliano himself. It plans to continue producing collections with an in-house team. Many unsolicited offers to purchase the label have been presented, but Christian Dior has made it quite clear it is not a priority.
The question that stands now is whether people will bother purchasing a tarnished name, especially without the genius behind it. Would you buy John Galliano designs if John Galliano wasn't designing them?
