Christian Dior fired top designer John Galliano, who has been the brand’s creative director since 1996, after he made anti-Semitic remarks and assault to a couple in a Parisian café.
The fashion house suspended him Friday after his arrest. A separate complaint was filled on Saturday and this morning the video of the designer saying “I love Hitler” hit the internet. According to Le Parisien, a French newspaper, it is illegal to make public insults against individuals based on their origin or religious affiliation. Therefore, Galliano will be tried in criminal court and faces six months in prison and a fine of 22,500 Euros, which is $31,200. The Christian Dior’s autumn/winter 2011 collection is set to premiere at Paris Fashion Week this Friday.
