John Galliano wasted no time in assembling his dream team of favoured collaborators from both his own label and his previous time at the house of Christian Dior ready to make a comfortable start at Maison Martin Margiela.

The newly established design team at Maison Martin Margiela will be a mix of current employees and new collaborators and according to Vogue, Dior muse and confidant Vanessa Bellanger, Alexandre Roux from John Galliano, Jean-Yves Mustiere, most recently at Roberto Cavalli, and Galliano’s former studio manager Rafaele Hardy are all said to be Margiela bound. Due to the house’s penchant for anonymity however, no official news of the linked names have been confirmed, saying only that Margiela “still considers itself a collective under the guidance of a creative director”. If the rumours prove to be true, this group of talented individuals would make the perfect dream team for John Galliano to make his strong start at Maison Martin Margiela.
