If you have not heard yet my dears, you are about to be extremely entirely disappointed in a person many seeking-extravangenza fashion hunter, followers of inspirational inaccessibly garments or people like me amazed at anything that brittle, have put their entire faith and belief in. John Galliano (-the great), the one who made us dream and travel throughout fairytale or lost cultures, in a cafe in Paris on Monday, fired verbally abused at a french couple using anti Semitism accusations (which I dare not to comment on). This accident was being filmed which followed a fast loop straight around major gossip websites around the world.
A man we all thought to be sane, even being his faux air of drunken pirate. Galliano was suspended from Dior after the episode reported, and hopefully without a return ticket.
I will never be able to respect or admire his creations. Now I will see all his catwalk as ordeal, perverse and insanity. The only mediatic reaction was made by actress Natalie Portman saying "I am deeply shocked and disgusted by the video of John Galliano's comments that surfaced today... In light of this video, and as an individual who is proud to be Jewish, I will not be associated with Mr. Galliano in any way. I hope at the very least, these terrible comments remind us to reflect and act upon combating these still-existing prejudices that are the opposite of all that is beautiful.". This a statement which I agree with. We should all immunize ourself against this epidermis of racism and prejudices, act against all of this. A designer does not create, he acodomates, so maybe the world of fashion should come out of its shell quickly to trace a big bold chalk line between right and wrong.
To John Galliano.
I am jewish and proud.
