The House of Dior has been saved. All eyes are on the newly appointed Raf Simon, the House’s fifth designer since Christian Dior himself. Eight powerhouse designers – Alber Elbaz, Pierre Cardin, Stefano Tonchi, Franca Sozzani, Marc Jacobs, Donatella Versace, Azzedine Alaia and Diane von Furstenberg showed their support at Simon’s highly anticipated show. The guests were greeted with 30,000 flowers but it was the spectacular haute couture collection that stole the show by the end of the day. The avant-garde designer proved that he can do more by transforming the House of Dior. Ladies and gentlemen, this is a new era of haute couture. His modern interpretation of Christian Dior‘s 1947 New Look with delicate embroidery, voluminous skirts, modernised peplums paired with black cigarette pants. The avant-garde designer reconstructed Christian Dior‘s classic Bar jacket into a new silhouette that could possibly change history. I was in awed, literally. Who’s with me? See my Facebook Page for the full collection.

I die for peplums and cigarette pants with a little bit of romance.
Powder pink. Bright yellow.
Intricate embroidery with a modern twist.
The old/new silhouette.
Can you get fuller than this?
The unconventional seems conventional with Raf Simons.
