I sincerely hope the Galliano brand won't become a third tier brand and if does happen it means LVMH would be stupid enough to bring it to it's knees and jeopardize their reputation. There has been talk about Galliano buying back his name which sounds like indentured servitude but he needs to understand that no one can rightfully take advantage of you when you're down, unless you let them. His talent is too great to be caste aside and I firmly believe he is the finite replacement to Karl Lagerfeld of Chanel because he is more talented than him. Stick to Karl please!!!!

The core of Chanel doesn't feel very Galliano. Too strict, if you will. I would have thought Ackermann of Slimane.

What Galliano should have is his own brand.

Errm ... why no one has mentioned retirement? Or consulting ... he's not exactly a spring chicken and he has certainly worked his @ss off.

I think he shud get a place in Spain and collab every once in a while.

You deserve it, John!

^^ Galliano only designed based on the whimsical and free form feel of how long the Dior leash was given to him. I believe he is able to grown up and he was playing into the whimsical frenzy of what buyers wanted from him. I only say that he is a fit for Chanel because through all that struggle and pain his last namesake collection showed the fine detail that was really his inner self coming through.

I mean Chanel did short hotpants and miniskirts and hooker shoes during Karl's rein and it was a three ring circus that women in 50s who could afford but not buy. So why not John's problem was that he wanted to show his practical side and move onto his own and it was exemplified in his last collection under his name.

Karl is not more talented than John and vice versa, I don't see why not given the former is going to retire and Ackermann is just too dark in his designs and doesn't give the whimsical happy feeling when looking at his clothes.

I just have a feeling that John Galliano will be back at Dior before we know it, Like Dom Imus.

Indeed, altho i think she kind of owed it to him since he picked her to open like 10 of his shows for the past few years. I think she's the longest running show opener in recent history. I know Galliano was very fond of Gisele also but I think Karlie holds the record.

I don't see it as "being brave"; she's the face of the label, so it only makes sense.

very true. most of the celebs/models i've seen still sporting dior have contractual agreements to do so.

Galliano didn't deserve this... what he said was terrible, but poor man... too talented to just let it go. I can't imagine Dior without his magical storys. it is silly what they are doing to him, what he said.. i dont think he knew what he was saying.. dosent make any sence.
