News comes today that not only has epithet-hurling designer John Galliano been let go from his position as creative director of Christian Dior (as reported earlier), but that he has also been fired from his own label, John Galliano. WWD reports: "According to sources, the 17-year-old firm’s board recently met and decided to eject the maverick British designer. Meanwhile, Christian Dior SA, which owns 91 percent of the Galliano house, has received unsolicited expressions of interest in the business from several of its Italian licensing partners, including sportswear maker Ittierre SpA and Perfume Holding, sources said." The design team at John Galliano is understood to be taking the reins for the next collection. [WWD]
