Just days into Paris Fashion Week, it’s been reported John Galliano’s Autumn/Winter 2011 show has been cancelled – in favour of a small presentation – following the disgraced designers arrest for anti-Semitic remarks.
A Galliano spokesman has today confirmed the show will not go ahead, but will be replaced with a presentation for a handful of press and fashion buyers.
This follows a disastrous week for John Galliano, after being arrested for drunkenly ‘verbally accosting a couple seated on a cafe terrace,’ and anti-Semitic remarks.
A tape showing the design star talking about his ‘love’ for Adolf Hitler later emerged, and he was swiftly suspend, and then sacked as creative director of French fashion house, Christian Dior.
Yesterday, French prosecutors confirmed they plan to put Galliano on trial.
If found guilty of making anti-Semitic remarks, the design star could face a prison sentence of up to six months, and a £20,000 fine.
