As numerous fashion bigwigs leap to John Galliano's defense, Karl Lagerfeld — the rare sort of designer in the same league as Galliano in terms of talent and fashion influence — takes a very different stance. He tells WWD:

"I’m furious, if you want to know. I’m furious that it could happen, because the question is no longer even whether he really said it. The image has gone around the world. It’s a horrible image for fashion, because they think that every designer and everything in fashion is like this. This is what makes me crazy in that story. The thing is, we are a business world where, especially today, with the Internet, one has to be more careful than ever, especially if you are a publicly known person. You cannot go in the street and be drunk — there are things you cannot do... I’m furious with him because of the harm he did to LVMH and [chairman and ceo] Bernard Arnault, who is a friend, and who supported him more than he supported any other designer in his group, because Dior is his favorite label. It’s as if he had his child hurt."


Instead of complaining about Galliano for 6 pages, I think we should discuss who we think is going to take over. I keep reading that everyone thinks that Ricardo Tisci will be moved from Givenchy to Dior like Galliano was in the 90s but I don't want to see that happen. I love Givenchy under Tisci.
