Proud Catholic Riccardo Tisci Set To Take John Galliano’s Dior Job

Riccardo Tisci, the Givenchy creative director who put trans model Lea T. on the map, has left his spot there and is expected to take over Dior from the anti-Semitic clutches of gay designer John Galliano. And while it would be ridiculous to assume Tisci share’s Galliano’s views on Jews, he certainly isn’t afraid to credit his Catholic upbringing for his collections: “Religion is big part of my DNA and collection was about my Catholic(ism) and every other religion in a way.”
