Un­der- fire fash­ion guru shown Dior

Townsville Bulletin - - The Goss -

CHRIS­TIAN Dior says it’s fir­ing de­signer John Gal­liano af­ter an on­line video showed him prais­ing Adolf Hitler – a bomb­shell cer­tain to rock fash­ion’s elite world as the lat­est Paris ready-to-wear shows be­gin.

The French fash­ion house showed the famed Bri­tish de­signer the door on Tues­day fol­low­ing a string of ac- cu­sa­tions of racist and anti-Semitic rants against pa­trons of at least one trendy Paris cafe.

Gal­liano’s sack­ing raises ques­tions about where Dior will turn for direc­tion next, and the men­tal state of one of the world’s top tal­ents in an in­tensely cre­ative and high-pres­sure in­dus­try.
