John Galliano To Stand Trial in Paris, Hadn't Finished Fall 2011 Dior Collection

John Galliano To Stand Trial in Paris, Hadn't Finished Fall 2011 Dior Collection

>> Shortly after John Galliano issued an apology statement this morning completely denying the claims made against him, the Paris prosecutors' office has announced that it has decided to put the designer on trial following a police investigation.

The proceedings are expected to take place between April and June, and if convicted — anti-Semitic slurs are illegal in France — Galliano could face up to six months in prison and up to €22,500 ($31,000) in fines.

As for his last Dior collection — for Fall 2011 — which is expected to be shown as planned on Friday, Galliano had not completed it before his suspension last Friday, according to people close to the company; his design team, however, is working to finish the collection in time.
