Parsons students may no longer have access to John Galliano, after his planned three-day workshop was abruptly cancelled this week, but Vanity Fair readers will soon get the chance to bear witness to the disgraced designer’s first interview since his public, anti-Semitic outburst in early 2011.
WWD reports that the coveted interview will run in the magazine’s July issue, and speculates that it may also get traction in international editions, since writer Ingrid Sischy is a coeditor of the Italian, German, and Spanish titles.
As for what the content and angle may be, nothing is certain yet other than its broad scope, with his publicist Liz Rosenberg telling the trade that she has “no idea” what the subject matter might be, “because I haven’t seen the article. I don’t know if there’s a slant.”
Presumably, however, Galliano will discuss his legal tribulations, stint in rehab, and cautious return to the fashion industry via a brief residency in Oscar de la Renta’s studio. Whatever the content, though, one thing’s for sure: this one’s ging to be a doozy.
