Famed designer John Galliano has made a dramatic return to the catwalk after his infamous racism scandal. 

Gibraltar-born designer Galliano was sacked by Dior three years ago after making controversial anti-Semitic comments that were caught on video in a Paris cafe.

A French court awarded a 6,000 Euro suspended fine to Galliano after finding him guilty of anti-Semitic behavior.

Galliano, 53, is now working as Creative Director for Russian perfume and cosmetics retailer L'Etoile.

The company is Russia's largest beauty chain, with 900 shops across the country and Ukraine.

The company posted the announcement on its website, notifying fans that "John is Back!"

The company said that Galliano "will create communication and brand images for the chain, plus be involved in developing makeup and accessories collections to be part of L'Etoile's signature cosmetics brand, called L'Etoile Selection".

Galliano, known for his theatrical and artistic shows, took to the catwalk for a debut event with the company, being first seen in silhouette as he and a company executive walked on to the atmospheric runway.  

The atmospheric entrance took place after a dance and musical presentation at a lavish event in Moscow.

Last year saw the designer make a return to the fashion industry with a temporary residency at Oscar de la Renta.
