John Galliano, sacked as chief designer at Christian Dior amid a furore over alleged anti-Semitic remarks, has now been fired from his eponymous label.

Women’s Wear Daily said Galliano, 50, had been “formally sacked” by directors of the John Galliano label, which is 91 percent owned by Dior.

It added that a sell-off of the upmarket label was not an immediate priority for the owners, despite “unsolicited expressions of interest in the business” coming in from China, Italy and the Middle East.

Dior, controlled by French luxury goods tycoon Bernard Arnault, abruptly fired Galliano on day one of Paris fashion week in March as he was formally charged with uttering anti-Semitic insults at a cafe in the French capital.
