It’s Official! Raf Simons Taking John Galliano’s Place at Dior

Raf Simons

The rumors can now be put to rest: Raf Simons is now the official creative director for Christian Dior. The designer, who recently left Jil Sander, will be filling in John Galliano’s space at the luxury house.

For over a year, after Galliano was fired from Dior due to his anti-Semitic rants, designers like Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang and Ricardo Tisci were all in talks of becoming the next creative director for Dior. But Simons has finally secured the coveted spot.

The designer told the New York Time’s Cathy Horyn, “The first time I heard about the Dior position I thought, ‘This feels right.’ ”

It will be exciting to see how Simons will change the face of Dior, seeing how Galliano made the brand all his own.

What are your thoughts? Does Simons have what it takes?
