John Galliano - Oscar De La Renta Comes To The Rescue For Fellow Designer John Galliano

If there’s one thing true in the world of fashion, it is that fame doesn’t last forever, but neither does disgrace.

This is especially true of famed designer John Galliano, who is apparently putting an end to his fall from grace, according to a report by Women’s Wear Daily. The designer, who ran into a lot of trouble in 2010 and 2011 after a series of anti-semitic rants, which got more publicity than he had probably intended, had his career end rather abruptly. His stunts resulted in his firing from Christian Dior and the designer has been lying low ever since. It looks like he’s on the rise again however. Or he’s trying anyway. Galliano has been offered a few weeks’ residency in Oscar de la Renta’s studio in New York city and this may just be the push that Galiano’s career needs. Then again, it is pretty hard to recover from a blunder of that scale.

De la Renta himself said of the decision: “John and I have known each other for many years and I am a great admirer of his talent. He has worked long and hard on his recovery and I am happy to give him the opportunity to reimmerse himself in the world of fashion and reacclimate in an environment where he has been so creative.”
