John Galliano Takes Another Step Toward Recovery



In a candid interview with French newsweekly Le Point, John Galliano opened up to psychiatrist Boris Cyrulnik about life since his 2011 fall from grace. The designer, who recently took the reins as creative director of Russian perfumery L’Etoile, also spoke at length about facing persecution for his sexuality as a child. This marks one of only a few interviews Galliano has granted (last year he spoke with Vanity Fair and Charlie Rose) since largely departing the public eye. He reportedly pitched the Q&A to Le Point as a step in his recovery program, which includes three meetings with a psychotherapist. But Galliano seemed optimistic about the future, telling Cyrulnik, “I’ve lost, but I also gained a lot. I’m a creative person, and no one can take that away from me.”
