Who Took The Bow At Dior?!?

The cutest finale for a fashion show ever.

In what is clearly the most insurmountable public relations snafu on Earth, well, fashion Earth anyway, Christian Dior was challenged to stay the course and host their fashion show today in Paris in spite of the debacle that is John Galliano. The above picture features the staff from Dior ateliers, who took the final bow at the show. This is the most fantastic, emotional, democratic, loving way to handle such an awkward moment and to thank those who attended the show. Yesterday The Huffington Post asked its zillions of readers whether or not the Dior and John Galliano shows should be boycotted. My answer? No. This from a concentration camp survivor’s son, who was absolutely appalled by the quote by Galliano, “I Love Hitler“, which would make a fierce T-shirt…kidding! Anyway, each season, I would wait with bated breath to see the images from the Christian Dior show. I was an avid Galliano fan. Does his recent Charlie Sheen moment make me despise him? Maybe his inner demons. But not his craft. One has to excuse those who are at the depth of despair, crippled by their addictions. Believe me, I know this all to well. The one life lesson that has helped me throughout many dark hours is ‘forgiveness is the key’. Am I ready to forgive him? Well, let’s just first get him off to rehab, watch him eat a few slices of humble pie and finally, lose those quirky hats.

    This was indeed a very well constructed end for the show at this point in time. It must have been so awkward for everyone there but I think the situation has been handled quite well. I am also happy what has been done with the Galliano show, I think cancelling the runway show was a good thing to do and having a small presentation instead is a much better way to go now.

    [...] it? Surely the reviews from WWD and style.com wonder what really is the next step for the House of Dior after this kind of presentation. The new kid on the Dior block, Bill Gaytten, is really not that [...]
