I have that book and Galliano is mentioned in the intro by Ingrid Sischy...

for example, on page 12: "As the pictures here demonstrate, Galliano's work for Dior Haute Couture is a testament to the medium's rich capacity for narrative."

It doesn't write in big letters stuff like "designed by John Galliano" underneath a picture or behind it on the next page, but it treats pictures of garments designed by Mr. Dior himself with the same anonymity.

I'm sure this was deliberate as to not offend Dior by labelling which dresses were designed by him (which is pretty much the majority of the photos) and which dresses were designed by others, but John is given credit in the book, though.

It is almost a year to the day since news broke of designer John Galliano being arrested for making anti-Semitic remarks to a couple in a bar in the French capital. Since then, he's been stripped of his duties at Dior and his eponymous label, been to rehab, found guilty in court and received a suspended fine. Oh, and designed Kate Moss's Great Gatsby-esque wedding dress last summer.

With no day job on the cards, Galliano is firmly turning to his friends for support. Which perhaps explains why he was spotted at London bar for DJ Jeremy Healy's 50th birthday bash. Healy, of Haysi Fantayzee fame - and latterly Patsy Kensit's fourth husband (the couple have since split) was celebrating at restaurateur Mark Hix's eatery on Soho's Brewer Street.

"John was quiet and reserved, he was sober and very demure, but there to support his friend," a source told Page Six .

The source added that his appearance at the soiree "caused quite a flutter in the room."

Galliano, 51, is still thought to be in recovery. Since his dismissal from Christian Dior and his own-name label, his former aide Bill Gaytten has assumed the responsibilities of creative director at both fashion houses.

^ who is exactly complaining about the presence of john's work in that book? i mean really now? you can hate the man as much as you want but his creative genius is undenaiable, an actual piece of fashion's recent history and - ultimately - simply amazing to stare at.

Hummm...

News broke yesterday that Derek Lam was leaving his post as creative director of Tod’s after 5 plus years. This morning a follow up story in WWD confirmed that fall 2012 Tod’s collection was indeed Lam’s last collection for the brand but neither party has yet commented. Which leaves things completely open for rumor and speculation.
In a rather off-handed way, WWD dropped this little nugget:
Lam’s departure coincides with continued speculation that John Galliano was in talks with the Italian firm to either do a Tod’s capsule collection or revamp its Schiaparelli brand. However, Della Valle firmly dismissed the rumors.
Um, what? So now Galliano is talking to Tod’s? First of all, let’s reiterate that Della Valle “dismissed” the rumors. So this is entirely speculation. But after doing a bit of digging, this is the first time we’ve seen Galliano’s name linked with Tod’s chairman Diego Della Valle. Harper’s Bazaar UK published a similar tidbit this morning:
Speculation is mounting that John Galliano may make his return to fashion by revamping the Tod’s’ Schiaparelli brand or may even lend his name to a capsule collection.
Della Valle purchased the Schiaparelli trademark back in 2007, and since then, there has been lots of guessing about when he might try to revive the label and who he would tap as creative director. Back in 2009 WWD reported that he wouldn’t try to revive the house until at least 2011. Olivier Theyskens and Roland Mouret were both rumored to be in the running for the creative director spot. Anna Wintour even weighed in in 2010, in that New Yorker article about the Rodarte designers: “The Mulleavys are ripe for a house who might be looking for a designer. A place like Schiaparelli, which is just sitting there waiting for the economy to be better — I think they’d be perfect for that.”
In light of the fact that the Prada/Schiaparelli exhibit is about to open at the Met, it seems like the perfect time to relaunch the iconic brand. And it may sneakily be happening already. From a lengthy profile on Della Valle in Hong Kong-based magazine Prestige:
Della Valle knows his designer stuff since he’s in the midst of selecting a creative director to head up the Schiaparelli brand, for which a revival is planned this year. “When we’re finished developing and expanding Vivier, we’ll start with Schiaparelli,” he says. “This is the last challenge, to develop this brand.”
Back in December, WWD talked to Della Valle and tried to get some scoop about Schiaparelli but he was not very chatty about it, telling the trade “his company is working on the project but not ready to talk about it.”
We could see Galliano at the helm of this label whose founder was known for her eccentric designs. What do you think of this development? And how exciting is it that Schiaparelli may be close to a relaunch?

^Gallaino for Schiaparelli is probably too far-fetched but I'd die of excitement if it really happened.

I would be quite excited if Galliano was appointed to be the person to reintroduce the Schiaparelli name current fashion.

I heard he's actually in talks with the Gucci group. I'm already looking forward to his work, wherever he ends up at. It's been a dreary year without him.

Granted, there would be overwhelming publicity if Galliano were to give new life to another brand, in this case Schiaparelli, but most of that publicity would stem from the scandal surrounding it, and how well could that really end? ... Lilo-Does-Ungaro 2?

I can't really see, for the life of me, how the galliano aesthetic could fit the tod's one (in case of a capsule collection)
on the other hand, while i can see john revamping the schiaparelli brand, how out of thouch with today's market would it be? just like the worth house re-doing couture.

those articles on PPR courting galliano to launch a new haute - couture project, on the other hand, sound amazing. let's hope it's somehow true

it makes perfect sense, galliano going to Schiaparelli. it's low risk, and i don't think many houses can afford to take a gamble on him at the moment. Since he can't use his own namesake label, a revival of an older label with nothing to lose and everything to gain would work so well!
