John Galliano’s replacement at Dior still on hold
Weeks after Galliano’s very public split with Dior, no replacement has been confirmed for his position at the top fashion house.
We all know from the AW11 show that Dior has a large team behind the legendary name, but the fashion world still waits with bated breath to find out who will be taking the lead.
Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci has been all but confirmed as the new creative head, prompting a domino fall of speculations as to who would then fill his empty shoes at Givenchy.
However, all parties involved refuse to confirm the rumours, and it emerged this week that Dior may not announce the name of their new creative director for many months.
Speculation is rife as to why the announcement has been so delayed, with legal issues over Galliano’s contract, and a fear that the new collection would be overshadowed by the scandal, being cited as reasons for the delay.
Either way, we know that the pressure will be on the new creative head to produce the spectacular collections Dior is known for. We continue to watch and wait for the announcement of the year.
