Jerry Stafford, stylist to Tilda Swinton, hasn't forsaken his old buddy Galliano. "I probably met John at the time of Taboo, Leigh Bowery’s London club. John was probably just finishing his final collection at Saint Martins," he tells the Financial Times. "He was a club kid. It was very competitive. Walking into a club like Taboo, you had to be courageous, you could live or die on an outfit ... Galliano’s an incredible guy, and he’s still living in Paris, which I think is commendable after all that happened to him. John Galliano is a survivor."
