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.”
