I think they interpreted something wrong...he lead the design team for this collection, but he's not appointed creative director officially. What's with all the talk of LVMH considering rehiring Galliano after the Summer then? All very confusing.

LVMH Chief Says Galliano Will Not Return

Bernard Arnault, the chairman of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, said Saturday that John Galliano would not be working again for any of the luxury group’s brands, including the Galliano label. Mr. Arnault disputed comments made Friday that there had been informal conversations among LVMH executives about the feasibility of Mr. Galliano’s returning to his label at some point and what the media and public reaction might be.

“He will not be working for LVMH,” Mr. Arnault said after the Dior Homme show in Paris. Mr. Arnault added that after Mr. Galliano’s arrest and dismissal from Dior for anti-Semitic statements, “he didn’t have the simple politeness to contact me.”

Meanwhile, the Galliano company announced that Bill Gaytten, a longtime member of its design team, would become creative director of Galliano. Mr. Gaytten, who is also part of the Dior studio, oversaw the spring men’s collection, presented on Friday night, and took the bow on the runway.

If John doesn't return to his own line, the brand will sink, I mean, just look at the men's show, it was a disaster, and I think many of us including myself won't buy it anymore. Besides he's way too talented and I think he would found a new fashion house, so I think Mr.Arnault may have to think twice and reconsider hiring him again.

This just feels so weird. They need to just close the house.

^ I don´t know if they can do that, but would be the best. The people who only knows Galliano because of the scandal, will allways identify the brand with everything negative that happened; and people who did know Galliano, will not accept something not made by John or with an inferior quality.

At first, I thought it was terrible that John was left, somehow, without name. But now I think is the best thing that could have happened to him. "John Galliano" is a problem, and is LVMH who owns this problem, and don't think Bill Gaytten (or any other) is the solution.

I agree. If the name continues to damage sales then they will have to close the house.

The first collection of Gayten was very ugly,
the sense that the master hands did not cut and imagined that pieces
was so clearly...

Or maybe this is a LVMH tactic to sink the label.

That kinda sucks. There goes the Galliano brand.

I'm getting confused with all these new threads. Can the mods please merge them with the other Galliano thread?

I pray to God that JG will one day be able to use his own name to design for his own brand. That is if LVMH doesn't wreck his good name, which is what a lot of corporations have done to designers in the past.

Well, stating the obvious - this is not going to be great. So what is the point?

Humiliation of the brand somehow? I was thinking about when this sort of thing happened before - and I can't really think of one case. Halston is similar somehow, but he sold out to JC Penney and stopped making fashion. He did it all to himself....

I wish they could come to terms, he could find other investors to buy Galliano, move it off LVHM and move on.
