PARIS — While John Galliano was standing trial on a charge of public insult on Wednesday, employees at the fashion house that bears his name were hard at work readying spring men’s wear for the runway tonight — and a resort collection for which the firm’s chief executive officer has high hopes.
“There has been a lot of interest, a lot of appointments booked, so we will see,” ceo Pierre Denis told WWD on Thursday. “Obviously it has been a complicated year, but people are keen to support the house, and we are producing great collections. I hope this will be reflected in the sales.”
