Following his melt down, John Galliano is due back on the runway thanks to close friend and admirer Oscar de la Renta, who is opening up the doors of his atelier to the reformed wild child of fashion.
“We wish John the best of luck with his return to fashion. We've always been admirers of his flamboyant talent. He has been missed from the fashion scene these two years and we can’t wait to see the collection with Oscar de la Renta.”
This comment was released to Swide by the two designers, supporters of talents, both established and emerging, like they demonstrate with the Spiga 2 project and the Dolce&Gabbana store where their made in Italy accessories are mixed with a selection of collections by emerging designers from around the world.
Following Galliano’s anti-Semitic melt down two years ago, we were appalled, but also mourned the defenestration of this flamboyant designer. While Christian Dior continues to thrive, many a times our thoughts went to Galliano, and now, his friend Oscar de la Renta is ready to support him by giving him a chance to come back on the New York runway through his eponymous collection. Galliano will be residing at Oscar de la Renta for three weeks and contributing to the Fall Winter 2014 collection.
Here’s to show that fashion designers are not as catty as it is believed, talent and respect reign supreme in the fashion system.
