Dior’s Design Team Will Finish the Fall Collection, While the Galliano Line’s Future Remains Uncertain

Though designer John Galliano is out at Christian Dior as he faces allegations of anti-Semitism, the label's fall 2011 collection will walk tomorrow in Paris. It will be bereft of its finale — Galliano taking a bow in his flamboyant way, wearing his flamboyant costume — which has come to be worthy of as much anticipation as his designs themselves. But the design team at Dior will finish the collection, which was not finished before Galliano's dismissal, sources tell The Wall Street Journal.

Galliano may or may not make that famous bow of his at the show for his namesake label on Sunday, which is also scheduled to go on as planned. But following the show, the label's fate is unclear. Suzy Menkes reports that the LVMH-funded brand "barely breaks even financially," and that it remains to be seen if the licenses that support it will want to remain tied to a scandalized name. It's hard to imagine any big celebrities wanting to sit front row at that one, but plenty of people are speaking out in support of Galliano, so maybe those types will show.
