John Galliano’s Paris Fashion Week show scrappedMarch 5th, 2011 - 2:31 pm ICT by ANI
London, March 05 (ANI): John Galliano’s runway show at Paris Fashion Week has reportedly been called off.
The cancellation of show comes after the scandal over the designer’s alleged anti-Semitic remarks, reports the Daily Star.
The fashion world was rocked when the couturier was fired from his post as head designer at Christian Dior this week.
His dismissal came after a police probe into allegations the 50 year old hurled racist abuse at two strangers in Paris, France, and was filmed purportedly praising Nazi tyrant Adolf Hitler.
Galliano is now feeling the effects of the controversy - his press office confirms the latest collection for his eponymous label will not be displayed on the catwalk as originally planned for Sunday (06Mar11).
The show has been scrapped in favour of a downgraded “presentation”, which Galliano is not expected to attend. (ANI)
