Raf Simons new designer for Dior, moi j’adore!
Raf Simons is 43 and he’s a Belgian fashion designer. He studied furniture design and exposed to the work of international designers, he started to work with Walter Van Beirendonck in Paris as a fashion designer.
While everybody is betting for him to be the next Dior designer, Raf has refused to comment on rumours.
Unconfirmed reports that Raf is finalising the contract for his new position have been circulating since last December, with numerous fashion insiders wading in on the debate over his suitability.
“I have nothing to say,” the Belgian creative told press at his Jil Sander menswear show.
Since Galliano’s sacking last year, a number of big names, such as Marc Jacobs, have been in the running. Other people to be linked to the coveted role include Alexander Wang and Jason Wu.
We might have the answer in a couple of weeks….
