Martin Margiela's Galliano Verdict

Martin Margiela has given his approval for the appointment of John Galliano at the helm of the label he founded. The famously reclusive designer hasn't issued a formal statement, but a source close to 
him told WWD that he had given the choice the "thumbs up."

The Belgian designer officially left his eponymous label in October 2009 and declined to comment on the following developments - which saw designers including Marios Schwab and Matthieu Blazy helm the design team, without being publically named as creative director. 

Despite implementing a policy that all members of the design team should wear identical white lab coats - and that the studio should be recognised as being responsible for the collection rather than one designer - reports suggest that Margiela himself has long been keen to "see a leader at the label".

Galliano has already been spotted close to the brand's Paris headquarters wearing his white lab coat as he and his team begin work on their debut offering.
