Galliano offered fashion comeback

Preston and Leyland Citizen: John Galliano is to return to fashion John Galliano is to return to fashion

John Galliano has been invited to return to fashion in the studio of Oscar de la Renta.

De la Renta invited Galliano to spend time in his office over the next three weeks, according to a statement released by de la Renta's company.

Galliano was dismissed as creative director of Christian Dior and left his own label two years ago after an anti-Semitic rant at a Paris cafe was captured on video. A French court also convicted him on two other complaints of anti-Semitic behaviour.

Galliano said he is an alcoholic and has been in recovery for the past two years.

De la Renta said he has known Galliano for years and is "a great admirer of his talent".
