John Galliano makes a triumphant return to the fashion industry as the Creative Director of Maison Martin Margiela to include design control over the couture collection, women’s and men’s ready-to wear. This is the ecclectic designer's first gig since that infamous racist and anti-Semitic rant back in 2011. Galliano will make his debut at the French fashion house in January 2015 during Paris Couture Week.
Renzo Rosso, president of OTB, which controls Margiela, said in a statement on Monday, "John Galliano is one of the greatest, undisputed talents of all time - a unique, exceptional couturier for a maison that always challenged and innovated the world of fashion. I look forward to his return to create that fashion dream that only he can create, and wish him to here find his new home." How exciting!
