|Flowery Set @ Dior Couture Fall 2012 show|
Fashion had seen nothing like it for years. Outside in the street, there was hysteria. Inside, the industry's great and good—Alaïa, Elbaz, Jacobs, Theyskens, Tisci, Van Assche, Versace, von Furstenberg—gathered to see Raf Simons debut his first haute couture collection for Christian Dior.
Finally, The most anticipated show on Couture week has been done. Raf Simon's debut as the new creative director of Dior's womenswear was certainly not disappointing. From salons lined ceiling to floor with panels of blooms: delphiniums in the blue room, orchids in the white room, mimosa in the yellow room-which told took more than a million flowers, to the amazing details on the clothes, Raf was simply telling us his vision for the new Dior in his hand.
As Style.com said, his designs are quote 'Setting The Bar'. He brings back the original Christian Dior designs, which are simple, elegant, with an exquisite details. Lately, we used to see Dior clothes in Galliano's vision, which are Big and Bold. So for me, this was definitely a breath of fresh air.
His collection was consist of a number of stunning-detailed short dresses paired with troussers, a few black suits, simple new look-silhouette dresses in red, pink, yellow, prints-some with sleeves, some are bustier cut, and simple gowns.
