According to sources, John Galliano management is searching for a new manufacturing partner and hopes to return to the Paris men’s schedule in January. It’s among a host of European brands affected by the troubled Italian fashion manufacturer Ittierre SpA, which had produced the John Galliano men’s line before turning to the Court of Isernia, where it is based, for help in avoiding bankruptcy.
