I'm looking forward to Dior S/S 2012. Dior is Galliano, he made it what it is today. Looking at his predecessors, they didn't really leave as big a footprint.

I know Galliano has had some questionable stuff on the runway, but there are many moments of brilliance/genius that no one can match. are we going to see something as magical as this number in the future from a designer at Dior? I'm not holding my breath. I can remember when I first watched this show, and Georgiana turned around to show the back of this dress, I was stunned. I think this is one of the most amazing dresses I've ever seen.

I honestly don't think Dior will be the best show next season. I can't grasp the idea of someone besides Galliano designing for the brand. Whoever becomes the creative designer has some HUGE shoes to fill in...

^ not really. sydney toledano said the next couture will be made by the atelier and himself. From what I understand, John's successor will be announced next fall

I wouldn't expect much from the upcoming couture show either, it probably will be a massive rehash of all the rehashed silhouettes Galliano was forced to do for the last few seasons.

^ I agree. It will be like Galliano never left. So in a way he's still there .....

John Galliano could take over as Creative Director at GIANFRANCO FERRE
23 May 2011

After his scandalous departure from DIOR, British designer John Galliano is in talks with UAE based Paris Group which bought earlier this year the Italian house of Gianfranco Ferre. The hypothethis is even more likely given that the GF Ferre line is produced in licensing by Ittierre Group, today owned by Albisetti, which also produces in licensing the ''Galliano'' diffusion label.

^ If this pans out, they have to be throwing a lotta money at him.



ETA:
I am also momentarily discombobulated at the prospect of Galliano taking over the eponymous house of a former head designer for Christian Dior.

It makes a lot of sense, Galliano and Ferre have somewhat similar aesthetics. Their work for Dior is very connectible. As much as I loved the previous duo, if this happens I would be VERY VERY excited to see Galliano try a new house.

Galliano for Ferrè would be more than exciting, would love this rumour to be true

Haha. I love the fact Galliano could take over the house of the previous Dior designer. Kinda ironic.
