While some designers and celebrities haven’t been so hard on the former Dior designer, Isaac spoke out about his inexcusable behavior — and said he hopes he doesn’t ever work again!
Right before Paris Fashion Week, designer John Galliano was arrested for alleged assault and racist remarks — at first suspended and then fired from fashion house Dior, everyone went into a frenzy when footage of the designer, drunk and making disgraceful anti-Semitic remarks, surfaced. While some seemed shocked and even sympathetic, designer Isaac Mizrahi thinks his behavior is totally inexcusable.
“Galliano was more of a fetishist to me. He was more of a fetishist than a democrat. And I refer to him in the past tense, because I don’t think he’ll work again. I hope not. I hope he doesn’t work again,” Isaac told The Cut at MCC Theater’s Annual Musical Spectacular Gala at the Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC on Mar. 14.
Isaac went on to admit that while Galliano’s work was always praised, he wasn’t his biggest fan. “I guess I’m the wrong one to talk to, because I never really liked sort of what he did so much. I liked better what McQueen did. I liked better what Vivienne Westwood did,” he said. “So now I don’t like it, and he’s a Jew hater? I was like, buh-bye.”
