    9. Dior recovers, and Toledano speaks. After a stressful week for both the employees of the house and chief executive, Sidney Toledano, the runway was quintessential Dior, promoting a low-key, professional atmosphere. At the start of the show, Toledano executed his first public statement on the matter: [via NYTimes]

    “Since its founding by Monsieur Dior, the House of Christian Dior has lived an extraordinary and wonderful story and has had the honor of embodying France’s image, and its values, all around the world. What has happened over the last week has been a terrible and wrenching ordeal to us all. It has been deeply painful to see the Dior name associated with the disgraceful statements attributed to its designer, however brilliant he may be. Such statements are intolerable because of our collective duty to never forget the Holocaust and its victims, and because of the respect for human dignity that is owed to each person and to all peoples. These statements have deeply shocked and saddened all at Dior who give body and soul to their work, and it is particularly painful that they came from someone so admired for his remarkable creative talent.”

    [To conclude the show, Dior employees and assistants bowed in white lab coats, a simple and most sincere gesture.]
