Galliano attended DJ Jeremy Healys 50th birthday bash at Hix, Mark Hixs Soho bar and restaurant, The New York Posts 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 Gallianos 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 Mosss 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.
