Apparently the speculation has led to serious talks — and Marc may leave Louis Vuitton for Dior!

Although John Galliano was fired from Christian Dior back in March after allegations surrounding his anti-Semitic outburst and racist behavior, the French house is still void of a creative leader — but apparently that may change very soon, with Dior in serious talks with Marc Jacobs.

WWD reports that Dior is meeting with the designer’s lawyers in Paris, while Marc is busy in NYC preparing for his highly-anticipated fashion show. According to their sources, both the designer and the fashion house is “excited” about the potential move, which would leave Marc’s seat at Louis Vuitton vacant.

Considering Marc Jacobs is innovative and adored by the masses, (including editors), he just might be what Dior needs after being void of a creative director.

So, what would happen to Marc’s role at LVMH? It’s rumored that Phoebe Philo of Celine is first in line to succeed the designer. Known for her must-have handbags and chic collections, she’s definitely qualified.
