Sex And The City - Field Praises Galliano After Dior Firing

Sex And The City stylist Patricia Field has defended John Galliano after he was filmed making anti-Semitic remarks, insisting the video footage is a "farce".
The disgraced designer was fired by bosses at Christian Dior on Tuesday (01Mar11) following his arrest for allegedly hurling anti-Semitic and racist abuse at a couple in Paris, France. He was also caught on tape declaring his "love" for Adolf Hitler.
Field is outraged that the fashion world has turned its back on the couturier, and she's offered her support in a message entitled In Praise Of John Galliano, posted on her Facebook.com page.
She writes, "Beauty, intelligence and energy would describe John as I know him. Where in this trilogy could one find hate? I ask you! My second question is... What exactly did he say? And the third is... What is really going on here??"
And in an interview with Wwd.com, Field maintains Galliano's behaviour in the video is a "farce".
She adds, "People in fashion all they do is go and see John Galliano theatre every season. That's what he gives them. To me, this was the same except it wasn't in a theatre or in a movie. John lives in theatre. It's theatre. It's farce. But people in fashion don't recognise the farce in it.
"All of a sudden they don't know him. But it's OK when it's Mel Brooks' The Producers singing Springtime for Hitler."
