Baku – APA. Paris prosecutors on Wednesday ordered famed fashion designer John Galliano to stand trial in the coming months over alleged racial insults following a police investigation, APA reports quoting “Associated Press”.
The trial could take place between April and June, and Galliano could face up to six months in prison and euro22,500 ($31,000) in fines if convicted, the prosecutors office said in a statement.
The news came shortly after the talented 50-year-old designer apologized for his behavior after top-tier house Christian Dior sacked him as creative director over anti-Semitic remarks.
Video of an inebriated Galliano praising Hitler and the subsequent firing of one of the industry’s most talented and moneymaking designers has sent shock waves through Paris Fashion Week, which began Tuesday.
