John Galliano has won his first round in the Dior court case. Shacking up at Oscar de la Renta's studio has obviously paid off, as has support from members of the fash pack, namely titan Anna Wintour.
After the Parisian courts agreed to hear Galliano's claims against his dismissal from the fashion house, his lawyer, Chantal Giraud-van Gaver, said, "I am satisfied because Dior's request has been rejected, and our arguments have been upheld... For the time being we are winning".
It's going to be a long, drawn out process for sure but it's clear that Galliano is pulling out all the stops to make it back into the industry.
The fashion world is waiting to be charmed with more to-die-for couture, or perhaps a collaboration with de la Renta? Only time will tell.
