The designer was dismissed by the top fashion house in 2011 after spewing a drunken pro-Hitler rant at a cafe in Paris. Now we learn there’s more than latent anti-Semitism to Galliano — the man also has academic aspirations.
The fashionista will teach an upcoming three-day workshop at Parsons The New School for Design. A statement released by Simon Collins, the school’s dean of fashion, reads: “We believe that over the past two years Galliano has demonstrated a serious intent to make amends for his past actions, and as part of this workshop.”
Students are encouraged to engage the designer in “a frank conversation” about the challenges of running a fashion house.
We have a lot of questions for him.
