Show goes on for Galliano's signature line

March 7, 2011 12:00:00 AM PST
John Galliano's signature label showcased its ready-to-wear collection amid the former Dior designer's recent troubles.

The company chose to forego a big-budget runway show and instead held a small presentation for press and buyers in a townhouse.

It showcased just 19 looks, which is fewer than half of what typically would have been showed on the catwalk.

Galliano, who is rumored to be in rehab in Arizona, didn't attend Sunday's presentation.

Galliano was fired from Dior amid charges he hurled anti-Semitic insults at a Paris bar.

But fans of his work who attended the presentation said they still admire his designs.

Galliano's signature line is owned by Dior's parent company. There was no final word on the fate of the line.

Galliano's successor at Dior has yet to be named.
