Amen Mackos, Amen!

Galliano was given an Ultimatum by LVMH to fit in or ship out, about 5 years ago i think, when Sidney got rid of the 'cheaper' items and replaced them with Crocodile skin handbags, he was told to create a more exclusive allure to the brand and in the end his genius was twisted into a repetitive nightmare and he was criticized for that to no end.

I wish that he gets the job at Gianfranco Ferre because everyone needs a second coming, hopefully his demons are exorcised and he can let go of that entire debacle. Maybe fantastic luxury clothes that are wearable like his final Galliano collection.

Oh yeah supposedly Kate Moss is having him design her dress again, after denials following the incidents, that's what loyalty is for right? He helped her and she should help him.

I'm pretty sure we are going to see lots of high profile models who are loyal to him at whatever house he shows ends up at. and I cannot wait for that!

I just started collecting his Dior Couture Shows on video- I never really appreciated his genius before! I so hope he can straighten himself out and start using his talent again- this is a very rare talent!

Well I sure hope that Kate is letting him design her dress. Plus you are correct He would be amazing at Ferre. I think he is the only designer to do it with the respect of Gianfranco's spirit and architectural background

Kate cannot have him made her dress cause she has a contract with Dior

OMG I totally forgot about that. She definitely cannot do that. John got himself into this, I guess he going to have to get himself out of it.

knowing Kate, i think she'll find a way to incorporate JG into her public image, even if it's not the dress itself. as mentioned previously they are good and loyal friends to each other.

^Well, it was Kate (together with Naomi) who persuaded John to go to the rehab, so I'm really hoping these two are planning something together.

So he goes to court tomorrow? I hope it goes as well as it can...
Unfortunately, my videos are the same 'quality' we get from YouTube, which can be rather poor....I have them cataloged on DVDs now, but I so wish they were commercial quality and detail...

If Alaia decline LVMH's offer, then I really wanna know who will take it. I feel like it's gonna be a game of Hot Potato.
