Petition against John Galliano's Class Favorite 



Apr 25 2013


New York

Fashion designer and former head designer of Dior, John Galliano, in the past few years has failed to rise to his former glory in fashion. In 2011, a videotape of John Galliano shouting anti-semitic statements went viral, thus leading to his dismissal at Dior and the irreparable defamation of his fashion career. Parsons at the New School nonetheless extended Galliano with a position to teach a specialized fashion design seminar with their students, scheduled to begin this year. However, on April 25th, the Jewish student union of Parsons organized an online petition on to encourage and demand that the New School rescind their offer. The response to the petition was so strong that the New School in fact rescinded their offer and canceled the course.
