I don't really feel that idea either but well, I expect their work for Dior would be different than for their own brand. Who knows.

And Lacroix does sound exciting indeed! I haven't thought of him, but doing it now, he could do marvels with the house's heritage. Actually, he would be one of my top people to fill John's shoes now.

I put my vote in for Lacroix as well, that would be an absolute dream. He's the only name mentioned so far that I think could handle both RTW and Haute Couture and still keep the identity of the Dior brand.

Anna Wintour compared the Mulleavy's with McQueen in a recent interview. With that and the conspiracy theories behind this whole #gallianogate, one can only wonder

now being serious. I think both the rodartes and gareth lack maturity.
yet, lvmh has been eyeing the sisters for some time and sitting front row at their shows!
yet, they seem to struggle to deliver only 2 collections a year already!!!
hackerman, lacks commercial approach.
tisci is too perfect for givenchy. and yet, givenchy has been the ante-chamber for dior before!
hedi slimane... womenswear? hmmmm... too much responsibility! and he has always on red figures i hear. Let's just save Hedi for Chanel when karl retires please!
lacroix... too strong a vision, and his relationship with lvmh didn't work in the past. too baroque for Arnault's compulsive over-controlling attitude.


conclusion? nobody is perfect, but hey! galliano was also young and raw when he got there, and so was saint laurent if you wanna get romantic!!!
it really could be anyone. i am happy Dior went all the way with their decision. Galliano's comments were shameful, and why not say so... so were his latest collections!

My personal choice would be Antonio Marras for Dior. Perhaps an undramatic choice but I think he'd be very interesting and a good fit at Dior. I really feel he would excel in a big exposure position like this.

Well, I suppose that his approach for Christian Dior wouldn't be that baroque and opulent as it was for his own brand.

I do fear, however, that a new designer, was it Lacroix or someone else, will suffer from Arnault's cost-cutting obsession. That would be quite an uninviting beginning.

I don't see Gaultier @ Dior anytime soon. When they were looking for a new successor, post-Ferre, the bigwigs @ Dior did play w/ the idea of hiring Gaultier, but ultimately, they chose Galliano instead. Besides, Gaultier's work is, for the most part, designed in the same vein as YSL, not Dior.

Now that John Galliano has been officially ousted from the top creative spot at Dior—which he held for nearly 15 years—the logical question, of course, concerns his replacement. The usual heavyweights have already been floated—Alber Elbaz, Riccardo Tisci, Stefano Pilati—but sources in Paris are fingering Tisci as the top candidate for the job. "[Bernard] Arnault needs to move quickly to put this behind the house," says one source with business ties to LVMH. "Promoting from within [LVMH] is the logical choice." The 36-year-old Tisci, currently creative director at LVMH-owned Givenchy, joined the house in 2005. A native of Tartano, Italy, he worked as a carpenter, delivery boy, and store clerk to fund his education at Central Saint Martins. Tisci graduated in 1999 and worked in-house for companies such as Coccapani and Puma before launching his eponymous collection in 2005 and landing the Givenchy position months later.

"When I arrived at Givenchy, I was a guy from nowhere," Tisci told the Times' Cathy Horyn in 2007. "And Givenchy was kind of confused. Nobody knew what it meant anymore. I think now the press is beginning to understand what I’m doing." Tisci's haute couture sensibilities—and the increasingly glowing reviews of his couture collections shown biannually in Paris—make him the most qualified candidate for Dior, whose couture operation was founded in 1946. However, the Givenchy ready-to-wear and accessory business is much smaller than Dior's, with the menswear representing about 30% of the business. Givenchy operates only 16 freestanding stores—5 in Europe, 5 in Saudi Arabia, 2 in Qatar, and one each in Bahrain, Malaysia, Dubai, and Tokyo—while Dior operates over 160, including 12 in China alone.

Another top contender: Marc Jacobs, the artistic director of Louis Vuitton since 1998. Vuitton's business is significantly larger than Givenchy's, and Jacobs notorious strength in the accessory category must look appealing to Arnault, who would no doubt like to elevate Dior handbags to the must-have level of Vuitton. But to displace Jacobs would rock the boat at a cornerstone of LVMH's portfolio; that may not be a risk Arnault wants to take at this juncture. As usual: stay tuned for more updates.

Erm, not very enthusiastic about the possibility of Marc Jacobs..

I would LOVE to see Lacroix back, he's my favourite designer, but I don't think it's very likely..besides I loved his own brand, Christian Lacroix, but at Dior I doubt he'd get enough space for his creativity, and the money that goes with it..not enough "bankable" maybe..

Other people I'd like to see at Dior : Rolland, Valli, Theyskens, Josse..

This is just unfortunate for all the parties involved in all o this but I'm confident that they will find someone competent to hold galliano's position

Lacroix or Theyskens for Dior. No designer in recent years has been missed as much as Lacroix. I will cry if that happens.
And Theyskens is an obvious suggestion, really. His designs were too crazy for Nina Ricci, they won't for Dior. Atleast not so the house is in risk of financial troubles.

But pleeease let Tisci remain at Givenchy for atleast a while. Givenchy has been getting more love under him.

Pfffff ..... I really prefer Tisci at Givenchy ! Moving Tisci would create a bigger mess of musical chair as who would replace him (that's an entirely different story and thread for sure ... ) and why would they want to upset something that is good and has taken a little while to get right ?

Seriously hope it's not true.

So if Tisci or Jacobs were moved to Dior, would their current occupations be taken away from them, or would they design Dior and the other line(s)? It could be easier for Riccardo, but I can't imagine MJ designing for yet another brand.

Not to mention that neither of them seems suitable for Dior, IMO.
