Bill Gaytten has been made new creative director at John Galliano

British-born designer Bill Gaytten has been made the new creative director of the John Galliano label, after working with Galliano for over 23 years.

“It’s the same job for me; I’ve been doing it for a long time,” said Bill. “[ The menswear show] was a bit different because John wasn’t there. I’m dying to know what he thinks!”

Gaytten had been leading the design team at Galliano and oversaw the men’s collection from conception to catwalk – he also took the final bow after the label’s menswear show took place on Friday, reports Vogue UK.

The 51 year-old designer studied architecture at the Bartlett School of Architecture at University College in London, before landing a job with Galliano at both his eponymous label and at Dior.

Galliano himself is reportedly back in rehab after his trial took place in Paris last Wednesday, where he was ultimately faced with charges of public insult.

Gaytten’s official title has not yet been announced.
