Dior needs 'big name' replacement for John Galliano

British fashion designer John Galliano has been sacked by fashion house Dior following alleged anti-Semitic comments he made last week.

Dior said it had decided to fire him after seeing a video clip allegedly showing Galliano telling two women in a Paris cafe: "I love Hitler."

Dior is scheduled to present its collection on Friday as part of Paris Fashion Week.

Sasha Wilkins, a fashion expert and editor of the fashion blog said Dior would be looking to find a "big fashion name" to replace John Galliano.
