John Galliano is officially unemployed! Ouch!

First Dior and now his very own label!!!! The board for the John Galliano House decided to let him go after his video recorded drunken, antisemitic rant! From the top to the bottom, that is a long way to fall.
Mr. Galliano is creatively one of my favorite designers, so it is very sad to see this happen! But I have to admit at the same time that I am happy to see that there is a public backlash for this kind of behavior. What kind of a message would it send if he merely received a slap on the back of his hand?!?! Attention is being payed in the fashion world and I am glad it is acknowledging the seriousness of this kind of "conversation" in the 21st century.
