• To celebrate the release of their fourth issue, Paris-based fashion annual Vestoj is putting on a 20-minute play based on Charlie Rose‘s interview with John Galliano, which broadcast on PBS in June. The piece features “Little John,” a puppet rendering of the disgraced designer. “Both Galliano and Rose appeared to be acting out some very clearly defined roles, with very little scope for improvisation,” said Vestoj editor-in-chief Anja Aronowsky Cronberg “The story we are being told is seldom the actual story of importance.” If you’re looking to catch the play, it’s going on Decemebr 10th at the Silencio nightclub in Paris, and February 4th at the London College of Fashion.
