Raf Simons is leaving Dior! Very unexpected but not less true. Simons announced his resignation this week. After four years of being the creative director of Dior’s womens collection it is time for him to move on.
Simons was the successor of John Galliano and had huge shoes to fill. After just half a year on board, his first presented collection was a major hit! Many would follow and the House of Dior was raised to a new level. Following his heart and other passions are reason for his leaving.
We all know that Anna Wintour is always fabulous. Her sense of style is fantastic and you can count the times she made a fashion blooper on one hand. Anna was visiting the headquarters of Instagram this week got a little present; a hoodie. Right then and there see said that she had never worn one of those before. SHOCKER!
Where we mortals crowl up on the couch in our sweatpants and sweater, Anna Wintour stays fabulous. No hoodies for her. Yes, that’s right! The little gift was folded and put away, probably to never be worn!
On may second of 2016 the next MET Gala is planned. And just like very year there is a smashing theme. This year all those invited have to dress according to ‘the technology‘. I can’t wait to see what kind of extravagant outfits that theme will bring!
It may be no surprise that the main sponsor of next years MET Gala is Apple. Johnny Ive, front man of Apple, will do the honors of presenting the Gala. But he is in good company, Taylor Swift, Anna Wintour, Karl Lagerfeld and Miuccia Prada will stand by his side.
