John Galliano fired…

 

Christian Dior  fired designer John Galliano after an online video showed him praising Adolf Hitler, a bombshell certain to rock fashion’s elite world as the latest Paris ready-to-wear shows begin.

The French fashion house showed the famed British designer the door Tuesday following a string of accusations of racist and anti-Semitic rants against patrons of at least one trendy Paris cafe. Dior had came under international pressure after Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman, one of the company’s spokesmodels, said in a statement she was “shocked and disgusted” by a video in which designer John Galliano says he loves Adolf Hitler.

As Paris launched its 2011-2012 fall-winter ready-to-wear shows Tuesday, the Dior house is scheduled to present its collection on Friday. Galliano was also scheduled to present his own signature line on Sunday.
