Dolce & Gabbana are looking forward to John Galliano's fashion comeback.

The Italian design duo have pledged their support to the disgraced former Christian Dior creative designer - who was fired two years ago for a drunken anti-Semitic rant in a Parisian bar - and wish him all the best during his temporary residency at Oscar de la Renta's New York studio.

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana told Swide magazine: ''We wish John the best of luck with his return to fashion. We've always been admirers of his flamboyant talent".

''He has been missed from the fashion scene these two years and we can't wait to see the collection with Oscar de la Renta.''

Eccentric talent Galliano announced last week he would be spending the next three weeks helping his friend with his upcoming autumn/winter 2013-14 line.

Oscar has confessed he wanted to give his friend a ''second chance'' to bounce back from his controversial behaviour, which he blames on stress and addictions, and insisted he still has faith in his creative vision.

Galliano commented: ''I am grateful to Oscar beyond words for inviting me to spend time with him in the familiar surroundings of a design studio.

''His support and faith in me is humbling.''
