John Galliano Returns to Fashion, Joins Oscar de la Renta

The French designer will undertake a three week residency with the label after his exile from the fashion world.

After being convicted in September 2011 for his infamous Anti-Semitic outburst which occurred earlier that year, we — along with the rest of the industry — wondered whether a disgraced John Galliano would ever make a return to the fashion world. Maybe it is that easy to forgive and forget — nearly two years after he infamously slurred "I love Hitler" (and was subsequently fired from Christian Dior, left his own label and stripped of his Legion d'Honneur award), Galliano has been offered a position at New York-based label Oscar de la Renta. 

The specifics of what the French designer will be doing at Oscar de la Renta are not yet known, however it is known that he will undertake a three week residency with the house. "He [Galliano] has worked long and hard on his recovery and I'm happy to give him the opportunity to re-immerse himself in the world of fashion and re-acclimate in an environment where he has been so creative," de la Renta said in a press release, reports the International Business Times.

Galliano comments: "Several years prior to my sobriety, I descended into the madness of the disease. I said and did things which hurt others, especially members of the Jewish community. I have expressed my sorrow privately and publicly for the pain which I have caused and I continue to do so. I remain committed to making amends to those I have hurt."
