John Galliano returns on the stage, with a new creative project. It is set as the new Creative Director of the fashion house Maison Martin Margiela. In a statement, the Only The Brave, the family company that manages all the brands of the Group (as well as Diesel and Maison Martin Margiela there are Viktor and Rolf & DSquared2), says that the MMM (in fashion world the brand Maison Martin Margiela is shortened with three M) is ready for a new charismatic creative soul. “John Galliano is one of the greatest talents of all time, a designer who has innovated the entire fashion system,” mister Rosso said. Genius and recklessness, it is better to say. Recklessness because we can’t forget the episode that, in 2011, fired him from the position of artistic director for Dior following his anti-semitic outburst in a Paris bar. That event generated the general disdain, bringing the fashion house to that drastic choice. It seems that a period of rehab and the fact he stayed out of the limelight was the price to pay for that mistake. Now the gates of fashion are again open for him. Although, ironically, his return to the scene takes place in the maison symbol of anonymity. In MMM, the identity of the designer, by founder Martin Margiela onwards, remained entirely unknown. With the arrival of John Galliano this scheme seems broken. As WWD reports, Galliano will be the creative director of all the lines of Margiela, and the official debut will take place at the Haute Couture Week in Paris next January.
