Designer Isaac Mizrahi talked to The Cut about John Galliano: "It can’t be tolerated. I guess I’m the wrong one to talk to, because I never really liked sort of what he did so much. I liked better what McQueen did. I liked better what Vivienne Westwood did. So now I don’t like it, and he’s a Jew hater? I was like, buh-bye... Galliano was more of a fetishist to me. He was more of a fetishist than a democrat. And I refer to him in the past tense, because I don’t think he’ll work again. I hope not. I hope he doesn’t work again." Mizrahi says he hasn't seen Galliano since the Dior designer's cameo in Mizrahi's documentary Unzipped, in which they're filmed over dinner at Dave with Andre Leon Talley. [The Cut]
