"I look forward to his return to create that fashion that only he can create, and wish him to here find his new home."
The legendary fashion designer's new role for the Paris-based fashion house was confirmed on Monday morning after months of speculation.
He will apparently show his first designs for the house in January during Paris Couture Week, according to WWD.
The collection will be Mr. Galliano's first since he was dismissed by Christian Dior in March 2011.
