The designer, who lost his Legion of Honor last week, and his jobs at his eponymous brand and at Christian Dior last year, has kept a low profile since the café incident that started it all; however, the Telegraph writes, "It is believed that Galliano has lodged an employee/employer dispute claim for over €15 million (£11.9 million) at the Conseil des Prud'hommes, with a Paris hearing scheduled for February 4, 2013." Right before the fall 2013 shows begin, so the fashion folk can have something to gab about.
