Has John Galliano Been Working on Kate Moss's Wedding Dress in New York?
Kate Moss apparently told a group at a Topshop dinner during London Fashion Week in February that John Galliano was designing her wedding dress, and though her fiance Jamie Hince denied the reports, the rumor is still persisting.
Late last month, the Daily Mail reported that Moss had enlisted the help of Galliano’s boyfriend, Alexis Roche, to oversee every last detail of the wedding dress while Galliano prepared for his trial today. "Kate knows that John is deeply sorry for what happened and has always been a loyal friend," a source supposedly said.
And now, rumors have surfaced that Galliano — who told the court todaythat since the Feb. 24 incident that caused him to get fired at Dior, he has been at rehab in Arizona for two months, and then in Switzerland for two months — has been ensconced at the atelier of a leading fashion designer in New York, working on Kate Moss' wedding dress.
If true, will so public an embrace by Moss signal the beginning of Galliano's return to fashion?The Financial Times's Vanessa Friedman suggests that although Galliano's career is over in its present form, she could see him returning to the industry in time: "People love a redemption story."
