Bill Gaytten deemed fashion worthy at Paris show
on Tuesday,June 28,2011 00:06
Bill Gaytten, who was completely unknown by the press and individuals in the fashion industry a week ago, has stepped up and has taken the place of John Galliano as Dior's creative director. He showcased his talent at this year's spring and summer fashion show in Paris last week, according to the Associated Press.
Gaytten took a bow after the collection, which consisted of military jackets, leather caps and silk pants, was shown off by models. Many press professionals had no idea who he was, the news source reports.
The very public firing of Galliano came after a video went viral a year ago, which showed Galliano spewing anti-Semitic rants and praises to Hilter, according to the media outlet.
"Things change, things move on, that's life," Gaytten said after the show. He added that it felt strange taking Galliano's spot on the runway after the show.
According to the Telegraph, John Galliano's trial started the same day as the fashion show, June 22. The verdict will be expected this September.
