John Galliano, the immensely talented Gibraltar-born British fashion designer, has finally embarked on his first-ever solo project since his dismissal from the house of Dior in 2011.
According to, the 53-year-old has been roped in to design stage costumes for the famous English actor and director Stephen Fry’s new theatrical adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s popular comedy ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’.
Scheduled to premiere next year at London’s Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, the drama will be directed by Fry, who will also play the role of Lady Bracknell in it, and would be produced by the world-renowned West End and Broadway theatre producers David Pugh and Dafydd Rogers.
The former creative director of Dior is not new to the plot of the 1895 drama. Earlier in 1982, he had designed costumes for Lady Bracknell’s character, played by Judi Dench at the National Theatre.
A couple of years back, Galliano was fired from the French luxury fashion house Dior due to his disgraceful anti-Semitic remarks in a Parisian café.
The designer has recently assisted the renowned Dominican American fashion veteran Oscar de la Renta in creating autumn/winter 2013 collection.
The ‘Importance of Being Earnest’ is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personalities to avoid difficult social commitments.
