The Fashion Industry Is Overwhelmingly Sympathetic Toward John Galliano

John Galliano will go to trial in France, sometime before June, for allegedly making anti-Semitic remarks to a couple in a Paris café. Sure to be used as evidence in the case is a video that later emerged showing the designer saying, "I love Hitler," and other egregious things. Galliano has denied accusations of anti-Semitism and reportedly entered rehab in Arizona, but surely, this is a calamity which no career can recover from?

Roberto Cavalli: "I don't believe it because I know John since many years. He's such a wonderful person. I can't believe that he makes some racist toward somebody, because he's so international," he said. "I think that somebody wants to try to be bad with him. I think la Maison Dior should make to him a big red carpet because he helped Maison Dior to be what it is today. I don't want to judge anybody, but I love John. John, I am with you." [Telegraph UK]
