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.”

In Paris we get an exclusive look backstage at John Galliano Spring 2012 with makeup artist Pat McGrath, hairstylist Orlando Pita and top models Karlie Kloss, Miranda Kerr and Constance Jablonski. The beauty look was inspired by silent movie star Mary Pickford, so Pat used sepia blush on the cheeks and paled out the model’s skin with a light foundation to make the girls look “sweet and innocent“.

This was a confident first collection for Galliano’s new Creative Director Bill Gaytten, and he stayed true to the brand’s feminine aesthetic. Gaytten worked along side John Galliano for over 23 years, so he knows how the Galliano girl wants to look and feel. The bias cut evening dresses were sexy and romantic and just the way you want to look in summer. To shop the collection check out the new John Galliano online store.
