Christian Dior will show its fall-winter ready-to-wear collection as planned later this week, despite the sudden sacking of John Galliano as its creative director.
Dior sent shock waves through the opening day of Paris fashion week with its announcement on Tuesday that it was firing Galliano after 14 years.
The provocative designer was detained last week after a
couple accused him of making anti-Semitic remarks.
A video of him saying "I love Hitler" later surfaced online.
Hilary Alexander, Fashion Director of The Daily Telegraph:
"I think the major impact is going to be on John Galliano himself, because this is the name really that is featuring in all the publicity and stories that have been written. Dior is a house which has a 60-year history and billions of dollars in global sales which they must maintain. As far as I can see they intend to pick up the reins and carry on. It's business as usual and the show must go on."
Jessica Michault, Online Style Director at the International Herald Tribune:
"Dior was there before Galliano. Dior will be there after Galliano. The house is huge. It has lot of designers..."
Michelle Kessler, New York Times:
"Well I think it's unfortunate, it's really sad... I think it's really sad but things happen, people make mistakes, I don't think we should demonize him. But I think it's time for him to maybe get some help and take care of himself."
Susan Tabak, CEO (Chief Executive Officer) of fashion media company Susan Tabak website:
"The whole thing is very sad for Dior, sad for Galliano, sad for the world of fashion, for him to exit this way. Here we are at Paris fashion week, we want to focus on clothes and watch beautiful things and not scandals."
Antigone Schilling, Fashion writer for the slate.fr:
"I think we can't forget what he was in the fashion field, I think he was a genius and he brought Dior to a very wonderful state of brand because he had creativity. For me he is a genius and I will never forget what he did in the fashion field."
Shams, Kuwaiti singer:
"I'm shocked because the name of Dior has always been related to John Galliano, he's creative, he's a big designer and everybody is waiting for his fashion show every season. I'm shocked, I cannot believe it."
