Former Dior Designer John Galliano Ready To Move On From Anti-Semitic Past With 'Best Collection Yet' — Think He Can Do It?

john galliano talks about his comeback

It's been three years since John Galliano was disgraced and fired from his job as Dior's creative director following his anti-Semitic comments that were caught on tape.

But it looks like he may finally be getting back on track.

During a recent interview with psychiatrist Boris Cyrulnik for French newspaper Le Point, the designer sounded confident about his future. He said:

"I have yet to design my best collection. The new Galliano will be even bigger and better."

Considering all the iconic collections he's already designed for Dior, that's quite a bold statement to make, but we would love to see him give us something even more memorable!

He is currently serving as the senior creative director for Russian cosmetics company L'Etoile, and he also spoke about how much he still enjoys his work, saying:

"I love working, it's my therapy. I can draw until four in the morning every night and not feel tired. I'm driven by the creative process. I'm interested in theater, cinema and haute couture."

Of course, talk also turns to his hateful, anti-Semitic remarks that night at a Paris cafe. He explained:

"What happened was a defense mechanism. I repeated a pattern I had known as a teenager, and I was under the influence of an explosive cocktail of drugs and alcohol. I don't want to make up excuses, simply to try and explain what addiction can do to a person. I felt provoked."

John can never take back what he said, but it seems like he is in a far better place, and that he's truly learned from his mistakes. He said:

"The last three years have taken me on an incredible journey. I've come face-to-face with my demons, medicine and alcohol. I have rebuilt myself again. Thanks to my therapy sessions, which I've been having ever since going to the rehabilitation centre that cured me, I'm more in touch with my emotions. Anger, fear, rage. I was angry with everyone except for myself… What I've done will never be forgotten, but I regret it."

We hope he continues on his journey to heal and make amends, and we wish him the best.

    Yeah but you know, the fact he is gay offers him somehow a sort of special privilege which must excuse him? Fortunately for him that he is not heterosexual, nor that he had uttered hateful words in the USA against Blacks. No way Jose…

    Be black these days seems to be the excuse by excellence to pretend to be the perfect victim…

    Hi everyone, I was with my ex girlfriend for 9 yrs we had our ups and downs, happy moments and screaming moments and then one morning she told me it not working anymore. She moved out she went back to her mothers house with my kids and I got an apartment by myself it’s so hard not being with her. My life was displeasing especially when i try every way possible to get her back and all i got is stories of many spell casters which most of them happen to be fake Spell Casters.. I was determine to get her back fast! I convinced myself I could do anything to get her back my own way. So I browse on the internet looking for help bcos my kids need me too. I started reading story's of Dr. Abby Spell. I'm new on this spell stuff but I finally decided to give it a try and after several email conversation even though he's always busy he still respond to all my messages!
    Within 3days, I can tell you that his spell was outstanding and i'm so happy that he really help me put our past behind us and we are strong together now and thanks to Dr Abby because he is sacred.
