"Would you forgive John Galliano?" is the question everyone in the fashion industry is asking, and it looks like Oscar de la Renta's answer is a resounding yes. WWD reports that the disgraced Dior designer is in talks with de la Renta about a permanent position. Galliano recently completed a three-week residency with de la Renta, working on his fall/winter 2014 collection.
De la Renta CEO Alex Bolen released the following statement: "As we have said before, 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."
Regardless of what happens, de la Renta is a deeply respected designer in the industry, and his support for Galliano is sure to have a major influence in Galliano's comeback.
