John Galliano may land a more permanent role at Oscar De La Renta

Reports have emerged that John Galliano is in talks with Oscar De la Renta to secure a more permanent position at the fashion house.

Galliano completed a three week temporary residency at the luxury label prior to De La Renta’s autumn 13 show. The collection featured several of Galliano’s signatures including nipped-in waists, deep fabric folds and dramatic headpieces.

Since then speculation has been mounting that Galliano may take the reins at the fashion house once De La Renta has retired.

While representatives for Galliano declined to comment on the proposed position, the label’s chief executive Alex Bolen told WWD: “We are deeply impressed with John’s talent and would love to find a way to work with him in the future. To date, we have not found that way.”

Galliano fell from grace two years ago when it was alleged he had made anti-Semitic comments. He was dropped by Christian Dior and subsequently found guilty of the charges.

He was also stripped of his Legion of Honor award

However more recently, Galliano has been re-establishing himself in the fashion industry. He is currently suing Dior for unfair dismissal and has so far won the first round of his case.
