Would you let a man known for populating his runway with transvestites and outfitting his models in clothes inspired by homeless people dress your child? John Galliano hopes that fashion-obsessed parents will answer yes to that question. In October the always outré designer signed a deal with Diesel chief Renzo Rosso to launch a line for girls and boys ages four to 14. It is as yet unnamed and not priced, but the collection is expected to debut next fall. “Galliano likes to play and create fairy-tale worlds, even for adults,” Rosso told WWD. “Imagine what he can do for kids.” Imagine, indeed!
