We hear from a reliable pal in Europe that designer John Galliano's long-time right-hand-man, Steven Robinson, was found dead in Paris today. (Dior's corporate offices in Paris are now closed for the evening and whoever was there wasn't speaking English, so, we give you this with zero confirmation.) Steven, we are told, did an enormous amount of the work for Galliano for both Dior and for Galliano's own line, creating the sort of things that clients actually wanted to wear, and also served as the inspiration for some of the more S&M work. Described as the "John Candy of Fashion," Robinson was in his late 30s. The repercussions for both Galliano and for Dior may turn out to be a huge deal.
