Designer John Galliano has been fired from Christian Dior over his anti-Semitic remarks, WWD reports:
Sidney Toledano, Dior’s president and chief executive officer, said, “I condemn most firmly the statements made by John Galliano which are a total contradiction with the essential values that have always been defended by the House of Christian Dior.”
