What Does the Future Hold for Christian Dior??

As many of you have heard, John Galliano, lead designer for Christian Dior for the last 15 years has been dismissed. Last week, Galliano was involve in a bar scuffle at local Parisian Brasserie. He was caught on video slurring Anti-Semitic comments. The designer was apparently praising Adolf Hitler and telling a Jewish couple their ancestors would have been gassed.

This seemed to be a no brainer for Dior Execs as they down-size Galliano immediately following the incident. President and CEO, Sidney Telodano stated, " I condemn most firmly the statements made by Galliano which are a total contradiction with the essential values that have always been defended by the House of Christian Dior."

Since the incident, Gallino has reportedly checked into rehab. Of course he did, isn't this the norm, the notorious superstar lashes out in public in a drunken, or drug induced rage, and then decides that all of a sudden he/she needs rehab. Please! I don't buy this phony plea for some type of redemption because such strong, racial feelings will not change over night!

So I ask, what does the future hold for the "House of Christian Dior?"
