Not long ago, Dior had fired its designer John Galliano over misconduct and racist remarks. The news came as a shock to the entire world of fashion. Since then, rumors about who will be the next pick for the famed fashion house did the rounds, during the Paris Fashion Week as well. The name has now been revealed and it is 36-year-old Riccardo Tisci, the Italian designer who worked as the creative director for Givenchy. Tisci’s talent has been recognized on several occasions, including the costumes he designed for the “Sticky and Sweet” tour for Madonna in 2008. He is a graduate of Central St. Martin’s school in London.
News also reveals that Haider Ackerman is going to replace Tisci at Givenchy now.
Dior had to let go of Galliano because of anti Semitic remarks and public dissent against him. Last Friday was the first fashion presentation made by the brand without Galliano.
