Raf Simmons Appointed At Dior

  • Pin it

So much about Anna dello Russo’s fashion expertise! And inside fashion knowledge! Raf Simmons was appointed as the new creative director of the Christian Dior house. (why aim at Anna dello Russo? Because not long ago, immediately after Raf’s surprising departure from Jil Sander, Anna said that her inside sources told her that Raf Simmons is certainly not going to be the next Dior designer)

We’re hoping Raf will have plenty of time and inspiration to make Dior’s next couture show an absolute success. And as much as I loved Galliano’s flamboyant style, it has become clearer and clearer that he won’t make it back in the fashion spotlight any time soon (John Galliano was convicted after his much discussed about off – duty rant). So good luck, Raf Simmons, make the best of Dior!

I love his work. Since the very first time I saw it.
It will be very interesting to watch the turn he will make at Dior.
I love Galliano, forever, but Raff is so enormously talented. I am really curious and wish him the best of lucks.

The next Dior show will be really interesting and very different.

I wonder though if it matter anymore whose the head designer of a particular fashion house. Dior’s sales numbers still did rise despite the economic situation and Galliano’s unfortunate rant. That tells me it’s not that important since this is only real news to the ones that spend their money on the clothes instead of the by products.

I think Raf Simons work is great but not in my reach and I’d notice I have lost interest in whose the new designer of whatever fashion house……it’s only THE name….or A name…..good luck to Raf though :)
