John Galliano‘s return to fashion may be a bumpy one—he skipped out on the Met Ball and got his teaching gig at Parsons cancelled—but he still has plenty of industry support. Fashion journo Suzy Menkes is the latest to rally behind the former Dior designer, saying he deserves a comeback. “We know that creative people have all sorts of demons. I would never say that I love Hitler in any shape or form ever, and I don’t know many people who would,” she said during Fern Mallis‘ Fashion Icons series in New York City. “That’s not to say that somebody with such brilliant talent shouldn’t be given some kind of second chance. But how you do that is difficult.” [Vogue UK]
