Schiaparelli is almost too perfect for John I reckon. It's another classic and very influential fashion house, which John obviously has experience in. Additionally, Tod's would hit the jackpot with Galliano because he doesn't need to undergo any kind of "grooming" since Dior already provided him with that back in the 1990s. I can so easily picture him working with those silhouettes. I guess it's up to them to decide whether they want to overlook Galliano's debacle. I wonder if John would take the job if he was offered it. But wherever he goes, I hope he's regained his knack for design and showmanship. I miss that Galliano Gusto.

^ Thinking about it, Schiaparelli would be a pretty good brand for him - the bias cut with a strange, surreal twist.

Galliano Not Moving to Schiaparelli, Says His Rep
By Alex Rees
Call off the balloons and sheet cake. British Vogue spoke with John Galliano's representatives about recent murmurings that the designer would be taking over as creative director at Schiaparelli. The label's owner Diego Della Valle had already refuted WWD's speculation, and Galliano's spokesperson labeled the story "rumours and nothing more." So that's that.

"he waited for other people to understand what he was doing, instead of doing what they wanted.
Balenciaga never compromised."

I'm done with this. I'll start believing the apocalypse of 2012 more than any rumor about Galliano or Dior.

Um, that's so too bad, Galliano reviving Schiaparelli would be just perfect.

I'm becoming really fed up with the whole affair either.

That's kinda cool. Maybe he'll be working with Anna W?

if it's anybody who can put him back into the fashion world, it would be her.

hope it's something big, I miss John's work (not including the Dior bar suits he kept doing for the last few seasons while he was still with the house)

Anna Wintour pictured dining with John Galliano
An Instagram user captured what appears to be disgraced former Dior designer John Galliano dining with Anna Wintour in Paris on the same day Raf Simons showed his debut for Dior.


I don't know if this was posted, so here it is:
While the eyes of the fashion world were firmly fixed upon Raf Simons and his debut Dior couture collection last Monday, it seems the industry's most powerful figure, Anna Wintour, was rather more preoccupied with his disgraced predecessor, John Galliano.

Instagram user Albert Pang captured two photos of someone who looked very much like Galliano (long hair, pencil 'tache, hat and flower-adorned suit - who else could it be?) meeting with a very smiley Anna Wintour at the Paris Ritz's restaurant, L'Espadon, on Monday evening.

Pang told The Cut that he's "100% positive" it was the designer, continuing: "[He] arrived alone and took a seat outdoor[s] where I was, and ordered a drink (not sure what drink, [I] couldn't see it [be]cause I was two tables away). The picture with a few people was someone from the table who knew Galliano, and they said hi. Then about 10 or 15 minutes later Anna Wintour came and she seemed very excited, with hurried steps to Galliano. If I remember correctly, they hugged. But I couldn't hear a thing. Then they moved indoors for dinner."

It's a very rare photographed sighting of Galliano since he went into hiding following his much-publicised dismissal from Dior last year, although he has reportedly been spotted dining with Wintour's flame-haired colleague, Grace Coddington, in Manhattan, and also wandering around his Paris neighbourhood in recent months.

So, if it is in fact Galiano in the pictures, could it mean he and Wintour are colluding on his comeback?

I really feel sorry for John & I totally think all of this was blown out of proportion. I wish the best for him & I hope to see the fashion industry rally around him and support him in the future.
