There is a silly arrogance in the fashion scene; everybody knows better, everybody is a genius, everyone is the newest next big thing, everybody is invincible. It is an immense caged arena where fantasies are created but also destroyed, and in Galliano’s case, it was gone faster that you can say wow, although he was a king for almost fifteen years. Not everybody is untouchable, even Anna Wintour attends shows with bodyguards, a pie in the face is not really that glamorous when mixed with fur, but the show must go on…and some models still fall flat on catwalks…designers are so crazy. The biggest genius of all, McQueen, got fed up and said goodbye !
The two most dangerous things in the world right now are freedom of speech and political correctness, and on that note…technology will kill us all ! I strong believe that in the future, we will not talk, only text…everything that we could say, might go against us, unless we hold the title of comedians. I can hear the most outrageous wrong things coming out of a sober comedian, and people could almost die laughing.
Galliano declared he is going to rehab; I have lived in the presence of severe addiction, and I have witnessed, felt in my heart and heard the most hurtful things as a result of it, unfortunately it is a difficult road to make people believe that what perhaps sometimes what you said it is not what you meant, since words can never be unsaid, so I hope he will start the long journey needed for a better way of living, maybe one day he will find himself free again to continue his brilliant career as the great designer he is.
