It’s been a long time coming.
The fashion industry has waited for over a year with almost bated breath – I say almost purely because at first it was and then it became more exasperated than bated – for the announcement of who would take a seat at the creative helm of Dior after it was vacated by John Galliano due to anti-Semetic comments, unbecoming of one in a position of power at LVMH. ┬áNames like Riccardo Tisci, Marc Jacobs and Haider Ackerman were all at one time or another considered to be front runners, yet each was systematically denied for some reason or another. And now we know: Raf Simons has moved from his creative directive roles at Jil Sander – to be replaced by Jil Sander herself – to take the helm at Dior, designing womenswear and couture.
