Raf Simons for Christian Dior

18 Aug

John Galliano spent 15 dramatically wonderful years at Christian Dior, every show a spectacle, every dress an inspiration, in the end though it would seem you can have too much drama. After his last show in a Paris bar in 2011 there would be no more Galliano for Christian Dior.

Enter new head creative director Raf Simons, even with no haute couture experience the fashion world could not wait to see what he would do with our beloved Dior and what he did was really rather beautiful.

 

Raf Simons trawled the Dior archives in preparation for his first show and the vintage influence is clear to see, I love 1950s styling so it really could not have been more perfect for me! If only I could wear gowns like these every day.
