Hey my tellusfashion junkies, I’m back again for another week with all the fashion gossip.
This week John Galliano was found guilty in Paris!!!!
John Galliano had his day in court this week, where a correctional court in Paris, gave the verdict on the none present designer. Which of course came back as “Guilty”, for uttering racist and anti-Semitic comments in a Paris cafe.
The court handed down a total fine of €17,500, which includes €4,000 for February’s alcohol-fueled, anti-Semitic rant in a café that cost him his job as creative director at Dior, and €2,000 for a similar outburst last October. The ruling fell far shy of the maximum fine possible. The designer will also pay over €5,000 in legal fees and a symbolic euro in damages to each plaintiff and to five anti-racist organizations that had brought a civil suit.
As expected, Galliano will serve no prison time. In its comments, the court noted that despite his triple addiction (alcohol, sleeping pills, Valium), Mr Galliano was lucid enough to be conscious of his acts. That the designer had become “a ghost of himself,” and the loss of his iconic status was punishment enough, noted the lawyer for Geraldine Bloch, one of the plaintiffs.
With the trial closed, an announcement is expected from Dior shortly about Galliano’s successor.
