Thought you’d seen the last of the Galliano-Christian Dior fall-out? Think again. The disgraced former creative director at the French fashion house has reportedly filed a dispute against his ex-employer.
According to the Telegraph, Galliano has lodged “an employee/employer dispute claim for over €15 million” at the Conseildes Prud'hommes. It is thought the claim relates to his dismissal from the historic fashion house, despite being found guilty of making anti-Semitic remarks.
Galliano was last week stripped of his Légion d'Honneur Award, which he gained in 2010, in order to “preserve the legitimacy” of the esteemed prize. The designer has kept a low profile since video recordings of his drunken outburst came to light in February 2011.
