John Galliano - John Galliano Designing Costumes For Stephen Fry's West End Play

Subscribe to John Galliano alerts

Disgraced fashion designer John Galliano has landed a new job creating the costumes for Stephen Fry's West End production of The Importance of Being Earnest.

The style mogul lost his position as head designer at Christian Dior in 2011 after he was arrested on suspicion of racially abusing a couple during a night out in France, and he subsequently fell out of favour in the fashion world.

He is now attempting to put his career back on track, and has agreed to design the costumes for an upcoming London production of Oscar Wilde's classic comedy, which Fry will direct and star in.

Galliano previously dressed Dame Judi Dench for her role as the play's sharp-tongued matriarch Lady Bracknell in a 1982 production at Britain's National Theatre. Fry will play the same role when his show opens at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane next year (14).
