"Everyone in life deserves a second chance, especially someone as talented as John," "I think that life is about forgiving and helping people.…I think John is doing all the right things.” Oscar de la Renta
When Galliano 'left' Dior, Raf Simons Jil Sander and Stefano Pilati YSL, we always said one thing 'Can't wait to see what's next for them'! (although Galliano's situation was just a little bit different) Now let's recap: Stefano Pilati Creative Director and Head of Design at Ermenegildo Zenga, Raf Simons Creative Director at Dior..And last but definitely not least John Galliano to work in Óscar Aristides de la Renta's design studio!
“I am grateful to Oscar beyond words for inviting me to spend time with him in the familiar surroundings of a design studio.”. “His support and faith in me is humbling.” John Galliano
When John Galliano left the fashion industry in disgrace in 2010, everyone knew it: at some point, he'd be back. Now might be that moment. Oscar de la Renta has invited the disgraced 'designer' into his New York design studio over the next three weeks as he prepares for his forthcoming New York Fashion Week show! Although we had to wait for almost two years, this news feels so damn good! Especially thinking about those who, at the time, did not give Galliano a chance! We're pretty sure 'Oscar de la Renta' would have sounded like a really good joke for them two years ago.
"John and I have known each other for many years and I am a great admirer of his talent." "He has worked long and hard on his recovery and I am happy to give him the opportunity to reimburse himself in the world of fashion and reacclimate in an environment where he has been so creative." Oscar de la Renta
"Oscar de la Renta is the king of uptown style and John Galliano the prince of romantic glamour, so it should be a magical match," "I am delighted John's returning to fashion."Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman
