Raf Simons has been confirmed as the new artistic director of French fashion house Christian Dior after months of speculation as to who would take the helm after John Galliano’s very public exit 15 months.
Simons will take charge of the iconic fashion house with immediate effect. His first couture collection is due in July.
Simons said: “The name ‘Dior’ symbolizes the ultimate in elegance and refinement. I am truly humbled and honoured to become Artistic Director of the most celebrated French fashion house in the world.”
