J’adore Dior- as do most people!

Finally, after much controversy and talks surrounding the void at elite design house Dior, they’ve hired on!  Raf Simons will be officially replacing  John Galliano as artistic director of the 66-year-old luxury brand, in an announcement to be made formally on Wednesday.  Galliano was controversially fired from Dior last year after he made several anti-Semitic remarks, and the position of artistic director has been void for almost a year.

Simons is extremely excited for the opportunity, saying that his new position at Dior “feels right.”   Simons’ first collection is planned for July at the fall haute couture shows and will certainly be a change of pace for Dior.  As an alum of Jil Sander, We are so excited to see what his talent brings!
