After firing John Galliano for his anti-semitic beahaviour in Paris, Dior was left with no head of design and no real direction. It was on everyone's mind who was going to take over, after Heidi Slimane was named designer for Yves Saint Laurent, nobody could wait any longer for who was to take over Dior! Finally brilliant Raf Simons was asigned and I couldn't be anymore excited. Leading Jil Sander for many years and his own menswear line, his designs are minimalist yet full of feminine shapes. His last three seasons at Jill Sander was called the 'couture trilogy' and Dior is all about couture so who could be better? What are we to expect from Simons? Well he is starting straight away ready for couture fashion week in July, in an interview he said "I find that period between 1947 and 1957 extremely attractive, and there was a lot of modernity." Which in that period was a turning point in the fashion industry, elegance womanly figures and of course the New Look.
