That probably would not have been my choice of outfits for a court appearance, but then again I’m not a world renowned fashion designer.

Fashion designer John Galliano admitted today that he has a triple addiction to alcohol, valium and sleeping pills, as he stood trial for anti-Semitic abuse.

He said today: “I have an addiction. I am a recovering alcoholic, a recovering addict.” He made the statement after the French court heard a witness testimony about his outburst in a bar in Paris’ fashionable Marais district in February of this year.

He said he had since undergone rehabilitation treatment in Arizona for two months and in Switzerland. “After every creative high, I would crash and the alcohol helped me,” he said, adding that his creativity “helped make Dior a billion-dollar business.”

Asked why he didn’t tell police investigators about his addictions, Galliano responded: “I was in denial. I was still taking those pills and alcohol, and I was in complete denial.”
