Heard In London: Galliano To Decorate Claridge’s Xmas Tree-------
John Galliano has a thing for costumes, and it appears his latest role model could be Santa Claus. Word from London is that Claridge’s, the city’s most storied hotel, has asked the Christian Dior designer to decorate the Christmas tree that greets the guests in its Art Deco lobby. (Trimming duties were previously handled by an in-house team.) Galliano may be based in Paris, but he is, after all, a Commander of the British Empire.
The tree is set to be unveiled to the public when it’s illuminated on December 1. An official announcement is expected in the next few days.
