Three years after leaving the fashion design business in disgrace for his anti-Semitic behavior, John Galliano is joining Paris house Martin Margiela as creative director.

Galliano, after a long career at Christian Dior, left fashion in 2011 after he was caught on video slurring "I love Hitler." He was dismissed from Dior, left his namesake label and was convicted by a French court on complaints of anti-Semitic behavior.

He said he was under stress and admitted to being an alcoholic, and later apologized.

Maison Martin Margiela's parent company OTB announced in a statement Monday that they're bringing Galliano on board as creative director, praising his "non-conformist creative talent."

Margiela was seen as an avant-garde presence on the fashion scene under its founder but later struggled to retain its edge.
