John Galliano is to teach a master class at New York's Parsons The New School for Design.
The designer - who was forced out of his role as creative director for Christian Dior after footage of him making racist and anti-Semitic comments emerged online - has decided to teach students at the Big Apple's fashion college in a session named 'Show Me Emotion'.
Throughout the three-day workshop, Galliano and pupils will explore how feelings can be used in fashion design and will guide them to their full potential, Lucky magazine reports.
College dean Simon Collins will also take part, joining in on the last day of critique.
This will be the second educational visit for Galliano in the last few months, after he met and spoke with students at London's Central Saint Martins in March to see their progress on a project theme he set.
The designer is currently suing Dior - who appointed Raf Simons to take over his role - for a reported $7.8 million for his 'wrongful' termination and a judge ruled in February the case will continue in the Conseil de prud'hommes, which deals with labour related law.
His lawyer saw this as a ''victory'' for Galliano, but Dior are adamant the trial could continue in a commercial court instead.
The Paris Court of Appeal must now listen to both arguments in order to make a decision for October 24, when the trial will continue.
