I know: for someone who doesn't think John Galliano deserves a comeback, I'm obsessed with him. To me, he's the fashion version of what Sarah Palin was to politics in 2008: a sideshow that's so horrifying, it's mesmerizing. It's the kind of thing that brings out my multiple personalities: Get it away from me! Bring it closer, I want to look.
The former Dior designer's fake internship with Oscar de la Renta is coming to a close and based on how the American designer tried to distance himself from Anna Wintour's Galliano rehabilitation crusade in a recent interview with New York mag, it seems unlikely that Galliano will find a permanent home for himself in the house de la Renta (cheesing it up, yeah).
Page Six reports that the designer is considering a post teaching at a top fashion program — Parsons in New York and Central Saint Martins in London are floating around as the two likely options. I want to be like, "GASP Galliano molding impressionable young minds?!" But meh, looking up to morally dubious / creatively talented authority figures is a rite of passage. College kids and John Galliano deserve each other. Someone get this disgraced man a teaching job plz!
