John Galliano Renews Maison Margiela Contract

Five years after taking the reins as Creative Director.

Maison Margiela Creative Director John Galliano has extended his contract at the legendary fashion house. Galliano took over the brand in 2014, three years after his dismissal from Dior, due to anti-Semitic remarks. Since his appointment, he has quietly rebranded the label starting with a Hedi Slimane-esque shortening of the brand name from Maison Martin Margiela to Maison Margiela.

Only The Brave, the parent company that owns Margiela, expressed its enthusiasm for Galliano and his work. “Five years ago I believed that John was the only person who could take this house in his hands and I am even more convinced of this today,” said President Renzo Rosso in a statement. During Galliano’s five years at its helm, Margiela has doubled its revenue in part due to the development of its accessories line. Galliano’s collections have successfully infused theatrical flair and a gender-bending aesthetic into the house’s famously avant-garde design DNA.

Though unclear how long Galliano’s contract was renewed for, it’s expected to last for at least several years.
