British fashion designer John Galliano, who had promised a non-traditional approach for Maison Margiela, finally showcased his new line of dresses in the Paris Fashion Week Show.

The Creative director of the Paris-based fashion house Maison Margiela , Galliano was previously head designer of French fashion companies including Givenchy, Christian Dior and his own label, John Galliano. After being caught on camera making anti-Semitic remarks, the gay Gibraltar- born designer was fired by fashion house Dior in 2011.

In early 2013, John Galliano returned to the fashion industry with a temporary role at Oscar de la Renta’s New York Studio. He helped prepare for a showing of his Fall 2013 ready-to wear collection during February New York Fashion Week.

Portraying a non-traditional approach as promised, in the Paris Fashion Week, a model wore a gold hi-top trainer on one foot and a lace-up hiking boot on the other. She had layered ponytailed hair extensions under a Louise Brooks bobbed wig in a contrasting color. Moreover, the dresses were worn in two dimensions; they were draped over the front of a jacket like a bib.

It has been a year for John Galliano at Maison Margiela and he proclaims his innate understanding of design elements and techniques at Maison. However, he is warding off other Maison Margiela traditions of anonymity and a kind of minimal purity.

Although the designer did not take a post-show bow as of the house tradition, he was seen meeting with his guests beforehand. Moreover, the label is also subtly modified in Galliano’s image, with his maximalist tendencies evident in those mismatched shoes and layered multicolored wigs.

John Galliano’s collection is regarded as an appropriate opener for a Paris Fashion Week. The most anticipated debut of the season is that of Margiela alumnus Demna Gvasalia.

One of the most influential fashion designers in the world, Galliano is not married yet. He was previously dating his fellow Central St. Martin’s student and fashion designer, John Flett but their relationship could not last long because Flett was Jewish.

It‘s been a while since John Galliano’s long term relationship with Alexis Roche, who is a style consultant. He has been living in his Paris apartment with his long-term partner. He would not be ever married to a wife and have his own kids.

John Galliano was awarded the British Designer of the Year in 1987, 1994, 1995 and 1997. He also received his CBE on 27th November 2001 at Buckingham Palace in London, England for his services to the Fashion industry as a fashion designer.

British Gibraltan-born talented fashion designer, John Galliano has an estimated net worth of $32 million. He has earned his net worth as a fashion designer.
