Help Wanted

John Galliano
Help Wanted: Iconic French design house seeks creative head of it’s namesake brand.
John Galliano was fired last week as the creative director of Christian Dior. Gialliano was a extremely well known designer at an even more well know company. The termination has left a very coveted spot open in Paris and whom ever gets the job will become an instant leader in the fashion world. So who’s in the running? Officially Dior has said they are taking their time because they have to go through a lengthy legal process to terminate John Galliano. In the mean time two names have become the gossip front runners. Haider Ackermann and Riccardo Tisci. Ackermann just showed a collection that gave him the best reviews of his career while Tisci has been a long time favorite while designing for Givenchy. It will be interesting to see who’s chosen. I suspect it will be Tisci even though Givenchy’s Fall collection was ugly. (Tiger faces on the front of black velveteen  shirts. Gag!)
Haider Ackermann
Riccardo Tisci

Other names on the list:
Hedi Slimane
Stefano Pilati
Alber Elbaz
Alexander Wang
Olivier Theyskens
