Disgraced fashion designer John Galliano continues his return to the industry by teaching a master class at Parsons The New School For Design in New York. The British designer, who was fired by Dior after he was caught on camera making anti-Semitic remarks, will teach a course titled "Show Me Emotion." Parsons' believes Galliano "has demonstrated a serious intent to make amends for his past actions, and as part of this workshop, Parsons students will have the opportunity to engage in a frank conversation with Mr. Galliano..." A French court handed out a $8,000 U.S. dollar (6,000-euro) suspended fine to Galliano after he was found guilty of anti-Semitic behavior in 2011. Galliano said an addiction to drugs and alcohol was to blame for his conduct.
