An arrest warrant has been issued for British designer John Galliano for allegedly creating "stupid looking fashions", Interpol sources are reporting.
The iconic fashionista, who was fired by Christian Dior earlier this week after he made anti-Semitic remarks to a couple in Paris, is charged with making "clothes with feathers, bows and traily bits that make models resemble nothing more than chickens that have been through a wind machine".
Legal experts reckon this is the first time that a fashion designer has been charged with such an offence, but Damian Smythe-Davies, Bar Association Chairman, anticipates that, now one such charge has been issued, there will be many more to follow.
"I have no doubt that the Galliano thing will open the floodgates for many more such prosecutions, " Smythe-Davies explained.
"There has long been a clamour of public opinion for such a charge to be levied as more and more people are becoming increasingly concerned that influential designers like Galliano are creating product that is becoming more and more bizarre.
Would you like your daughter to appear in public dressed like a cross between a peacock and a twiglet ?
This sort of nonsense has to stop and it may well be that Galliano will be the straw that broke the camel's back.
But don't quote me on that - it might give Christian Dior another wacky idea for their new line".
