Supermodels Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista and Kate Moss helped disgraced fashion designer John Galliano get back on his feet after his infamous anti-Semitic rant and subsequent stint in rehab.

Galliano's fall from grace came after he was arrested for hurling racist comments at a couple during a night out in France in 2011, which cost him his job as head designer at Christian Dior later that year (11).

The star apologised, but the damage was done and Galliano was largely ostracised from the fashion community.

He recently sat down with Vanity Fair magazine for his first interview since the scandal, and admits he was in a really dark place at the time of the incident due to his substance abuse issues.

He says, "At first alcohol was like a crutch outside of Dior. Then I would use it to crash after the collections. I'd take a couple of days to get over it, like everyone. But with more collections, the crash happened more often, and then I was a slave to it. Then the pills kicked in because I couldn't sleep. Then the other pills kicked in because I couldn't stop shaking. I would also have these huge bottles of liquor that people got for me. Towards the end, it was whatever I could get my hands on. Vodka or vodka-and-tonic... But I never for one second would admit I was an alcoholic. I thought I could control it."

British catwalk star Campbell, who once struggled with her own drug problems, stood by Galliano and even helped reserve a spot for him at a rehab centre in Arizona, where he spent six weeks undergoing treatment.

Meanwhile, Evangelista was one of his first visitors. She says, "I just didn't want that weekend to go by without anyone reaching out to him."

When he was released, Moss hired Galliano to design her wedding dress for her nuptials to Jamie Hince. She explains, "When my dad gave his speech he thanked everyone and then he referred to the genius of Galliano, who made his daughter's dress. Everyone stood up and gave John a standing ovation. It was the most moving thing, because suddenly John realised he wasn't on his own."
