John Galliano might have a job lined up besides his Russian perfumery chain gig. According to Vogue UK and Page Six, industry sources are saying that the formerly exiled designer is in talks to create a couture line for Maison Martin Margiela and that he's "already hired five or six staff members for his atelier in Paris."

In response to the Margiela deal rumors, Galliano's representative told Page Six: "He's having active and ongoing conversations with a few companies."
