* Lauren Milligan from Vogue UK states her case on why fashion still needs Galliano. The ongoing debate on the separation between ones talents and ones actions is ever fascinating and will be talked about for many fashionable years to come. Ms Milligan's stance: "The industry does need him back," Burstein said. "It's not been the same since he's been exiled… He epitomizes the escapist fantasy that fashion is all about. And it's that we need so desperately. I'd welcome him back to Browns with open arms and I think others should too." Thoughts?
