John Galliano fired, Christian Dior fashion show goes on
John Galliano was fired on Tuesday by Christian Dior after he made anti-Semitic statements. The 'John Galliano' presentation will still take place on Sunday.
A spokesman for the John Galliano fashion line says the label will not hold a runway show in Paris Fashion Week as originally planned, but instead will host a simple presentation of its latest collection.
Label spokesman Alexandre Malgouyres says the site of the presentation and the guest list haven't been decided yet.
Questions have been widespread after Christian Dior said Tuesday it is firing the talented designer after a video published online a day earlier by a British newspaper showed him praising Adolf Hitler.
The Dior show was going on as planned Friday â€” though likely without Galliano on hand. The "John Galliano" presentation takes place Sunday.
Presentations offer a lower-key environment than catwalk shows to display new collections.
