Proceedings are underway to sever all ties between Christian Dior and designer John Galliano following two race-related scandals in the past week.


The move comes after a second complaint alleging anti-Semitic verbal assault was filed with Paris police as well as a video of Galliano at a Paris bar was posted on the internet where the designer, in a slurred voice, declares his love of Hitler and refers to people being gassed.


“I condemn most firmly the statements made by John Galliano which are a total contradiction with the essential values that have always been defended by the House of Christian Dior,” said Sidney Toledano, Dior’s president and chief executive officer, in a brief statement made on March 1.
