The Galliano show is cancelled in favour of a presentation on Sunday for the press and buyers, a well-placed source told AFP on condition of anonymity.
Rather than producing one of Gallianos trademark theatrical productions without the man himself, LVMH, which owns Dior, is expected to mount a more intimate, tableau vivant-style presentation in a storied hôtel particulier, reported WWD.
As for the Dior showits on. We hope so, at least, given that were planning to attend. Should be interesting.
UPDATE: An e-mail from the John Galliano press office reads: 'We will present the John Galliano AW11-12 womenswear collection with living models in respect of the John Galliano spirit and universe.'
