Disgraced gay fashion designer John Galliano is returning to the fashion industry with nonpermanent role at Oscar de la Renta’s New York studio.

The Gibraltar-born designer, once considered one of the most talented names in fashion is making a comeback after he was fired by Dior in 2011 for making anti-Semitic remarks on camera in a Parisian cafe.

Galliano, 52, cited an addiction to drugs and alcohol as the cause for his out of control behaviour and that he was determined to make amends.

He will spend three weeks at the de la Renta studio based in New York as he prepares for his forthcoming New York Fashion week show.


A French court handed him a $8,000 (£5,043) suspended fine.
