John Galliano - creative genius

I can't believe, everyone's turning their back on John Galliano. He did a stupid thing, I'm not trying to excuse what he did, but we all make mistakes and hopefully learn from them.
I understand why Dior had to fire him, as he cast a dark shadow on the brand, but I really hope this is not the end for the creative genius. Quite recently I posted about my top five designers and Galliano was one of them. After what has happened, my choices remain the same.
I read lots of speculations on twitter and Internet about his future.
Should people still attend his upcoming show in Paris? Yes! I bet it will be sartorially beautiful as ever.
Should Kate Moss still have her wedding dress designed by him? I hope she will. She should more than anyone else understand his need of support. Her cocaine scandal actually helped to boost her career and I'm hoping for similar happy ending for Galliano.
Who should replace him? This I don't know, I can't imagine who could fill his shoes. He made Dior loved by many and I truly believe, he will be hard to replace.
What the future holds for him? I just hope this is a bad period of his life that will be soon forgotten and he will be able to move on (again I'd like to use Kate Moss as an example). He IS a genius. And geniuses do crazy things ie. cut their ears off(Van Gogh) or in the extreme cases commit suicide (Alexander McQueen). Let's hope his talent won't get wasted.
All the best John.
Have a stylish day.
