John Galliano, the British fashion designer whose pro-Hitler outburst in a Paris cafe wrecked his prosperous career, is due in court on Wednesday to face charges of anti-Semitism. John Galliano will attend the high-profile trial in person and has been warned he could face a six-month prison sentence.
The 50-year-old was fired as creative director of Dior in March after a video emerged showing him allegedly telling a woman he “loved Hitler” and that her parents might have been gassed in a Nazi death camp. The clip, which surfaced online, sent shockwaves through the fashion world and Galliano was heavily criticised by numerous high-profile figures. If found guilty, the designer faces a fine of up to $31,500 and a six-month prison sentence.
