There's good news for John Galliano, who's been having a bit of a tough time since leaving Dior on a bad note in 2011 and losing the subsequent legal case he took against the company. Martin Margiela, founder of the eponymous fashion house, has apparently indicated his approval of John Galliano as the brand's new creative director.

Though Margiela keeps a famously low profile and remains, for the most part, invisible from the public eye, WWD reports that an informed source says he agrees with Galliano's appointment. WWD also reports that the founder has been keen for Martin Margiela to establish a new leader since he left the house in 2009.

Galliano joined Maison Martin Margiela in October this year and will oversee all lines. He shows his first collection for the house's "artisanal" (couture) line in January 2015.
