British designer John Galliano is back, albeit for a temporary consultancy. The designer, who in 2011 was fired from his post at Dior, will be taking up residency at the American fashion house Oscar de la Renta.
According to reports and confirmed by Vogue.com, Galliano will be spending the next three weeks with de la Renta in his New York-based studio.
"John and I have known each other for many years and I am a great admirer of his talent," de la Renta said. "He has worked long and hard on his recovery and I am happy to give him the opportunity to reimmerse himself in the world of fashion and reacclimate in an environment where he has been so creative."
"I am grateful to Oscar beyond words for inviting me to spend time with him in the familiar surroundings of a design studio," Galliano said. "His support and faith in me is humbling."
