More than two years after being fired from Christian Dior, John Galliano is once again an employed man — but it's not for a fashion house!
The designer will be teaching a 3 day workshop at Parsons The New School for Design for seniors in the BFA fashion program called "Show Me Emotion", where students will explore the power of emotion and design.
The school released a statement, saying:
"An invaluable part of a Parsons education is the opportunity to learn from the world’s leading designers, from Donna Karan and Diane Von Furstenberg to Olivier Theyskens. The planned master class with John Galliano will be a dynamic and intimate opportunity for our students to learn from an immensely talented designer. We believe that over the past two years Galliano has demonstrated a serious intent to make amends for his past actions, and as part of this workshop, Parsons students will have the opportunity to engage in a frank conversation with Mr. Galliano about the challenges and complications of leading a design house in the 21st century."
We can't quite think of anybody better suited for helping up-and-coming designers understand the intricacies of running a fashion business AND how one's emotions can influence it than Galliano. Plus, think of all the crazy fashion world stories he can tell!
We hope the select and LUCKY few who get to attend the class really appreciate it!
