Galliano makes his return to the social scene

John Galliano apparently surfaced at a social gathering in London, marking one of his first public appearances since attending Kate Moss’s wedding in summer 2011.

Galliano attended DJ Jeremy Healy’s 50th birthday bash at Hix, Mark Hix’s Soho bar and restaurant, The New York Post’s Page Six gossip column reported. Healy, a longtime friend to the designer, supplied the soundtracks to years’ worth of John Galliano and Christian Dior shows.

A source told the paper that Galliano’s presence ‘caused quite a flutter in the room.’

‘John was quiet and reserved, he was sober and very demure, but there to support his friend,’ the report continued.

The fallen couturier has maintained a low profile since being ousted from Dior and his namesake label nearly a year ago. He emerged for close friend Moss’s wedding, for which he designed the ‘20s-inflected bridal gown, but quickly returned to the rehabilitation centre where he was undergoing treatment.

Dior has yet to name a replacement for its former creative director.
