Designer John Galliano confirms his first TV interview with Charlie Rose, according to British Vogue. It will mark the designer’s first broadcast appearance since being dismissed from his position as creative director at Dior in 2011.
News of the television interview first began circulating last month, but was originally denied by the designer’s spokespeople. Galliano will film the full one-hour slot with Rose, with an air date yet to be confirmed. According to WWD, Oscar de la Renta – a close friend and supporter of the designer – was instrumental in arranging the interview.
“Charlie Rose has a very close relationship with Oscar. Oscar had been talking to John about the possibility of doing an interview with Charlie,” said Liz Rosenberg, Galliano’s publicist. “It seemed like a good platform for John to get his story across.”
