Marc Jacobs is close to signing a deal to become the head designer at Christian Dior, according Women's Wear Daily.

If the deal goes through, Jacobs will succeed John Galliano, who was famously let go by the French couture house in April after the designer threw anti-Semitic remarks on camera.

A post at Dior would mean that Jacobs would end his business at Louis Vuitton, where he has been creative director since 1997.

Along with Jacobs, frontrunners of the Dior job include Alber Elbaz of Lanvin, Nicolas Ghesquiere of Balenciaga and Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. All three designers have since taken themselves out of the running, WWD reports.

Jacobs, 48, is also the head of several brands under his name, including Marc by Marc Jacobs, The Marc Jacobs Collection and Little Marc. The designer is also famous for working with elite celebrities, including Kate Moss, Victoria Beckham and Kanye West.
