Maybe i'm just being cynical, but it really feels like that's the intended path.

as previously noted, it does seem like Arnault is taking this a little too personally.

LVMH bought the Ines de La Fressange name and she went through a brutal court trial and lost, that's the reason why her career as a designer just stopped. John has the same fate and will always be working for someone else, unless he designs for a new brand name but not using his real name he can still work for himself.

I can feel the hate of Arnault, too. It is more horrible that the words that Galliano said.

this is so sad, but most likely. hopefully we will see his work somewhere else soon, even though i can't imagine which fashion house would hire him now...

Can he create a new brand?
I mean another one called, for example, JOHN by John Galliano
Or LVMH has brought even his personal signature?
so he could create something like JOHN by you-know-who

Has he got loyal workers?
that would let Galliano ateliers and will go to work with him
starting from zero.

It would be nice see few but wonderfull collections from him.
it would be healtly for him and for the couture spirit.

I just can notice that nobody talks details about the scandal,
where are the workers who had the privilege of work with him?
why there is not major gossip?
what things LVMH hides?
why there is a sepulcral silence about it?
because LVMH makes collections
like there nothing happened,
and really if they has respect from the people
they should burn all the pieces that Galliano created
after all,
they didnt doubt about Galliano guilty.

^One way to get around the name issue would be to collaborate with someone else. If that is something he enjoys.

Of course, it's bizarre to hang on to the brand when they can't abide him in any way. The only thing that will result is more Walmart for Napoleon collections (this Men's collection).

I have no idea how tallented Bill Gaytten is, but given that he has worked with Galliano for years I dare say this collection must somehow have been outside his control.

The best way to get back at them is to change his name just like what Sean "Puffy" Combs did, just call him J. Giddy. Or create a new brand name like what Wolfgang Joop did with Wunderkind.

I wish LVMH did not buy all his names
Juan Carlos Galliano Guillén
(BTW Charles Guillen sounds chic)

i love that john galliano made those statements to ruin his OWN name and everyone here finds themselves concerned about whether or not lvmh will do something to damage his brand. i'm sorry, but lvmh did not make the statement that undermined the success of his house, john galliano has sole responsibility for that. further, if john galliano has made quite a bit of money with lvmh over the years and would have NO company if it weren't for the big wigs at lvmh (or another conglomeration that would give him the money) so it puts back into focus just how important one's words remain in our modern world.

john galliano did this himself. it's lvmh that's largely cleaning up the pieces he left behind. as for the new brand, i'd like to see him venture out on his own and create his own brand from the ground up. i bet you won't see all of the fashion fantasies that made him famous....not if he wants to earn enough to buy back his brand anyway....you'll see him creating stuff guaranteed to sell so that he can pocket the money to buy back the house his words separated him from. right now, we see that drama playing out with allessandro del acqua and we don't see anything so extreme from no. 21 or brioni, do we?

It is disgusting what LVMH is doing to Galliano, disgusting. Thankfully I don't buy anything LVMH anymore.
