John Galliano has arrived in the courtroom at Paris's Palais de Justice, dressed in a black three-piece suit with black brogues and a black-and-white polka-dotted neckerchief. He removed his fedora upon entering the courtroom.

Galliano testifies: 'At the time of the financial crash, I have two children. One was Dior, the other was Galliano. Dior is a big machine and I didn’t want to lose Galliano [the eponymous label]. At this point in order for that house of Galliano to survive, I met many businessmen and signed many licences. So the collections to increase men’s wear, women's, children, shoes boys and girls, perfume projects, jewellery, fine jewellery. Beach wear underwear, boys and girl's clothes. The workload increased very fast.'

It sort of looks like the court may be leaning toward giving John a bit of a break....

^

One thing he says is that the combination of Valium, Ambien, and alcohol gave him blackouts in which we wakes up and doesn't even remember what happened. The stress has been ongoing for the last few years in which he relied on prescription drugs and alcohol to numb the tension and stress.

I think he'll come out of this without jail and a small fine but he still has a battle ahead of him with his future work and finances.

I hope he gets through this okay and gets a fashion comeback. Jail seems like a pretty big price to pay for making stupid comments.

^ I agree. Let him pay a fine or something and get back to his life.

^ Some of these very strict laws must go back to the Occupation during World War II, when collaborators were treated very harshly after the Allies liberated Paris...except for Coco Chanel, who lived with a Nazi officer during the war, but that is another very involved story...

I don't understand the severity of this for it to go on trial. Someone explain it to me? I didn't know you could be charged for saying anti-Semitic remarks. His actions were inexcusable, but what happened to free speech?

Why is there such a stupidly long time between a ONE DAY trial and TWO MONTHS before the verdict?!? Crikey lord.

I cant understand it too. It is not a murder.
It just was a sick man who said stupid things after being full of alcohol and pills.
He is bleeding. He is not racist, we have see his work and it talks enough of him!

Poor guy. I am so sad for him. I have follow his work,
He made my dreams, he made the best moments of my life...
his work was my refuge.

Oh!
How could
I embrace him so hug, hug, hug, hug!
and full him of kisses!

HilaryAlexander said about it after the trial:
Why do I have a sense of deja vu about a 'butterfly being broken on a wheel'?

Galliano needs to give a public apology in a newspaper and give the accusers' a beautiful design drawing of his art for forgiveness.

The woman Geraldine Bloch is only asking for a 1 Euro compensation and an impromptu artwork from him would more than satisfy her and her boyfriend's complaint, and the judges would know he was truly sorry.
