Raf Simons Named Dior Designer du Jour

Raf Simons

So a few tears were shed at Jil Sander upon the announcement of the departure of head designer Raf Simons, whose Fall ’12 collection drew the admiration of even the ill-fated John Galliano. But Dior fans can cheer the newly named head honcho of the house with Simons’ graceful landing into the role there. He’s been quoted as saying it “just feels right” to be at Dior. We loved him at Sander and it’s this girl’s bet that we’ll love him even more at CD. What happens to Bill Gaytten, who has been steering the luxury ship since Galliano’s tirade? His future is unknown, but let’s hope that the execs from up above know how to show a little gratitude for some amazing collections in between celeb designers. Stay tuned, fashion fans!
