He’s the hot favourite to take over where ex-Dior supremo John Galliano left off, but talks between Marc Jacobs and Dior bosses are said to have come to a grinding halt after Marc asked for a whopping Dhs36 million to take on the role of Creative Director. Because of the increased responsibility that comes with the position at Dior–namely two couture shows in addition to regular and pre-season collections, totalling 22 a year –Jacobs and business partner Robert Duffy are said to have asked for a salary package in the “low eight digits” - which translates to a Dhs36 million pay packet. Woah! Mega bucks for a mega talent, but will Dior agree? Watch this space!
