Marc for Dior job?
Marc for Dior job?

The fashion world is abuzz over the possibility that US-born designer Marc Jacobs might take over as creative director of Dior.

The label, seen as the jewel in the crown of French fashion, has been floundering for nearly six months since longtime creative director John Galliano was sacked over allegations he made anti-Semitic remarks.

Jacobs is among the top tier of designers worldwide, adored by critics and consumers for his signature label and for his work for Louis Vuitton - the coveted bag maker which is also owned by Dior parent company LVMH.

Fashion trade publication Women's Wear Daily cited anonymous sources earlier this week as saying that Jacobs had been approached by LVMH management about a move to Dior and that the two parties were in talks about a possible deal.
