John Galliano has been awfully quiet since he was convicted in a French court last year of making anti-Semitic statements in a Paris bar -- an allegation that had led to his dismissal as creative director of Dior. Since the whole scandal began a year ago, Galliano has reportedly been to rehab and surfaced publicly only for the wedding of Kate Moss, whose gown he designed. But a reportedly quiet and reserved Galliano emerged a few days ago in London for a friend's birthday party at a local hotspot.

Some of the issues they plan to address involve pay, sexual abuse and protections for teenagers in the industry. [The Cut]
