As the main underwriter of John Galliano's namesake label, Christian Dior has said it would continue supporting the line for now — but that is not a guarantee of the label's survival in the wake of his firing from Dior. The label wasn't a big moneymaker to begin with, and the scandal doesn't seem to be helping. A Saks spokesperson tells "Page Six" that while the store will continue selling Dior, "John Galliano's men's collection, of which we had a small presentation, is no longer on the floor of our New York store."
The general manager of the Saks flagship had previously spoken to the website dot429 about whether or not she'd continue to stock Galliano's clothes: "We have values like I hope everyone else has. What happened was not right, and we would not want to carry his merchandise in honor of our customers and my employees that work in the store."
The question remains of whether customers will want to buy clothing bearing the name of a disgraced man. Plenty of fashion people may be hoping for Galliano's return, and his clothes may still be the bee's knees in the hearts of plenty of editors, but a designer has to be able to sell things.
