John Galliano We Are Waiting on You…

By: Stylenabler / 16th October, 2014

Galliano is seen looking far from the extroverted performer we became accustomed to during his time as one of the world’s foremost designers, and wears a simple pale blue shirt and navy jacket while looking somewhat drawn and downcast.

“You recognise that what you said was hateful, vile, anti-Semitic?” asks Rose, a well-known television interviewer in the US. “I do. I apologise. And I am trying to make amends in the best way that I can,” replies Galliano, before going on to say that he takes full responsibility for his addictions and the resulting behaviour that they caused.

“The drinking did creep up on me very slowly. It started cyclically. After each collection, after each creative high, there’d be this crash. And then were these — I used the drink to stop the voices,” he admits, going on to say that at times he “was acting like God.”

Rose also touches on the subject of Alexander McQueen, Galliano’s design luminary who committed suicide in 2010, asking what he understood about McQueen’s decision to take his own life.

“That loneliness, that pain, that — I mean, as addicts, we’re in such perfection. We’re setting that bar impossibly high,” replies Galliano. “We don’t understand why we’re doing it. And people say ‘wow, how are you going to top that?’ And we’re like, yeah, we’re going to. Don’t worry. That’s what, you know, makes us wake up in the morning. I was very sad.”
