The fashion industry shook as news broke out early this morning of Jil Sander’s creative director, Raf Simons, officially leaving the house after the Milan Fall 2012 runway show this Saturday, according to a joint statement by the Jil Sander Group and Simons.
According to this statement, his successor will be announced in a few days.
Simons, who has been designing for the brand for the past seven years, has helped to cement Jil Sander as minimalistic, modern and clean.
Now that Simons is leaving, questions quickly arise circling the open directorial seat at the house of Christian Dior. Will Simons now take John Galliano’s place at the Parisian luxury house?
Jil Sander, who founded the brand in 1968, is officially returning to head the brand once again!
This is amazing fashion news!
