Disgraced designer John Galliano, who lost his job at Christian Dior following an alcohol-fuel outburst in December 2010, is set to make his triumphant return to the world of fashion should he accept the offer of residence with Oscar de la Renta in New York.
The designer, who served as creative director of Christian Dior before his dismissal from the fashion giants, was filmed whilst speeding head-first into a triad of abuse and insult towards two Jewish women at a bar in Paris just prior to Christmas 2010. The disgraced designer's mouth served as the shoot uploading garbage on the unsuspecting bar patrons, in which he declared his admiration for Adolph Hitler and his abhorrence of the Jewish faith and its followers. His comments were filled by a fellow bar patron and then went viral, with Galliano's world seemingly ready to fall apart around him with each mounting viewer of the tape.
He told the unsuspecting women: "I love Hitler. People like you would be dead today. Your mothers, your forefathers would be f*cking dead, f*cking gassed."
Whilst this would usually serve as the hammer blow for someone's career, particularly one who spends so much time in the spotlight, Gilliano looks as though he has managed to keep his foothold in the fashion business for just that little bit longer with the announcement of Oscar de la Renta's interest in him. The news of his new job offer was joined by a humbled John, who told the press afterwards: "I am grateful to Oscar beyond words for inviting me to spend time with him in the fam iliar surroundings of a design studio. His support and faith in me is humbling."
