Galliano's No. 2, Steven Robinson, Is Dead

Steven Robinson, John Galliano’s right-hand man, was found dead in his Paris home Wednesday, most likely of cardiac arrest. The 38-year-old had been working on the new Dior resort collection, which is expected to show this summer. Robinson was credited by colleagues as the "huge engine and realizer" at Galliano and Dior. Fashion writer Suzy Menkes called him "a robust and burly figure in the shadows, but the one who made everything work." Now Galliano, often touted as a fashion maverick, will really go it alone.
