Yesterday the John Galliano show went on without John Galliano, who is said to have entered a rehab facility in Arizona since being fired from Christian Dior for allegedly making anti-Semitic remarks. It seems unlikely, considering the great show of support the fashion community has made for the scandalized designer, that this would be his last fashion show ever, but that is a possibility. Sidney Toledano, the CEO of Dior, which owns 92 percent of the Galliano label, attended the presentation in Paris and told Reuters, "For the moment, the [John Galliano] business continues."

"This is a business which has licenses and tomorrow we will show the collection in the showrooms as usual... I am here to prove that business goes on... and to support the teams."
