The Rise and Fall of Galliano and McQueen Four years ago, the fashion designer John Galliano sabotaged his career. He unleashed a drunken, anti-Semitic rant at a Paris cafe. It was captured on video and went viral. Days later, Galliano was fired as chief designer for Christian Dior. A year before Galliano’s implosion, another fashion prodigy also self-destructed. Alexander McQueen, who turned clothing design into fine art, killed himself. He was just 40 years old. Galliano and McQueen helped open the exclusive world of high fashion to the masses and became celebrities in the process. But ultimately, they couldn’t withstand the pressure. A new book out this week tells the story of these two men, and how their lives were remarkably similar.
