The Galliano world tour continues—this time without Galliano. The former Dior couturier—not in person, but in puppet form—will be the star of a twenty-minute play put on by the French fashion magazine Vestoj to celebrate its new issue, WWD reports. “Little John” is adapted from Galliano’s now-famous apology interview with Charlie Rose (who will also appear as a puppet). It debuts at Silencio in Paris on December 10, followed by a second performance in February at the London College of Fashion. (Galliano himself is an alum of rival London fashion school Central Saint Martins.)
As for a costume, what could be more appropriate for a pint-size reproduction than a Napoleonic outfit? Puppeteer Etienne Bideau-Rey based the puppet’s garb off the nineteenth-century look Galliano wore to the Spring 2007 Dior Haute Couture show.
