Scandal-rocked John Galliano has downgraded the Fall 2011 showing of his eponymous label in Paris from a full runway show to a presentation.
Galliano is thought to be in rehab following accusations of alleged racial outbursts and his dismissal from the helm of Dior earlier this week.
His theatrical runway shows, both for his own-name label and the house of Dior, are usually among the highlights of Paris Fashion Week.
While the Dior show took place in Paris this afternoon, John Galliano's own collection, originally arranged as a runway show, has been toned down to a simpler presentation for buyers and journalists, a source told the AFP.
WWD reports that while Galliano's collection will still keep its 5 p.m. time slot this Sunday, the location and format have been changed: "Sources said plans for a runway spectacle in landmark Left Bank brasserie La Coupole have been changed in favor of a tableau vivant format in a hôtel particulier. The designer will not be present."
Dior, which controls the John Galliano label, has not yet disclosed its intentions for the future of the company.
