Ex-Dior creative director John Galliano was found guilty in French court this morning on charges he made anti-Semitic comments to "at least three people in a Paris cafe," reports CNN. "He has been fined 6,000 euros but has not been sentenced to prison time."

This verdict marks closure in a months-long ordeal that shocked the fashion world. The industry is still awaiting the fallout from Galliano's fall from grace with bated breath—the creative director's dismissal from Dior has opened the door for what will likely play out as major upheavals at the helms of luxury fashion houses across the board.
