John Galliano to Teach at The Prestigious Parsons

It is confirmed, the former Dior creative director John Galliano will be teaching a master class at Parsons ,The New School For Design, in a new class titled "SHOW ME EMOTION" . The four-day master class will have three day workshop in the design studio with the designer followed by a critique session with Galliano and Simon Collins, Dean of Parsons.

The course description reads: “‘SHOW ME EMOTION!’ seeks to engage its participants by provoking the power of emotion in context of fashion practice and exploration of intuitive, perceptive manners of investigational making.”

The New School told Lucky magazine, "An invaluable part of a Parsons education is the opportunity to learn from the world's leading designers, from Donna Karan and Diane Von Furstenberg to Olivier Theyskens. The planned master class with John Galliano will be a dynamic and intimate opportunity for our students to learn from an immensely talented designer. We believe that over the past two years Galliano has demonstrated a serious intent to make amends for his past actions, and as part of this workshop, Parsons students will have the opportunity to engage in a frank conversation with Mr. Galliano about the challenges and complications of leading a design house in the 21st century."

Does this mark the comeback of Galliano era? The designer was sacked in 2011 from Dior after an anti-Semitic rant caught on video at a Parisian café. Earlier this year, at Anna Wintour's behest, Oscare de la Renta hosted Galliano as an “artist in residence” to help him with his Spring 2013 collection. The moves definitely indicate that John Galliano is poised to return to the world of Fashion.
