John Galliano’s preparing a comeback?You bet he is.


So, Galliano’s  much anticipated interview for Vanity Fair highlighted his great problem coping with addictions such as alcohol and drugs,leading to his ant-Semitic rage that cost him his place in the House of Dior.He attributed the above to the pressure he lived under,being creative director both to Dior and to his trademark brand,”John Galliano”.He explains: ”What had started as self-expression turned into a mask,” he said. “I lived in a bubble. I would be backstage and there would be a queue of five people to help me. One person would have a cigarette for me. The next person would have the lighter. I did not know how to use the ATM.” In the interview Galliano appears as humble as it was expected to be,knowing that its the first act of his comeback.He tells Vanity Fair contributing editor Ingrid Sischy, that he has been sober for over two years now and that theirs is the first interview he has ever given sober. Galliano tells Sischy he felt creating Kate Moss’ wedding gown was a gift: “Creating Kate’s wedding dress saved me personally because it was my creative rehab. She dared me to be me again.” If you read behind the lines, you definitely feel there is a comeback being scheduled,i am certain.Annie Leibovitz  photographed the designer at Sawkill Falls in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York,with his image showcasing the same low profile and humility,as in the interview.Well,its been too long with Galliano absent from fashion developments yet his honest confessions that ‘rehab has had the required, dramatic effect on him,it literally presents a new,clean face of the designer.What’s next to come? Hoping a creative,true project not a media outburst.
