John Galliano Replaced at Eponymous Label

John Galliano's replacement at his own eponymous 'John Galliano' label has today been announced. He has been replaced by Bill Gaytten Vogue UK reports via WWD. Gaytten, 51, has worked with Galliano for 23 years on both the John Galliano and Dior labels, as part of the design team. He commented that his work hasn't changed, but some elements are different without Galliano: "It's the same job for me; I've been doing it for a long time, [ The menswear show] was a bit different because John wasn't there. I'm dying to know what he thinks!"

Galliano has now returned to rehab since his trial last week and must wait until September until the verdict is determined. A recent rumor has suggested that LVMH may consider rehiring Galliano after his stint in rehab if that is something they believe the public will accept. Cathy Horyn reported that the company have been discussing the designer and his possible return:

"One individual said there had been casual discussions among LVMH executives about the feasibility of Mr. Galliano returning to his own label. Would the media and the public accept his return? This individual said he thought so. Another executive with whom I spoke had the same view. He cited the appeal of Mr. Galliano’s ultrafeminine fashion and added that in recent years the designer had lost touch with that sensibility (and indeed reality). 'It became a kind of Lady Gaga show, and he’s more talented than this,' the executive said."
