a note from the founder ...
Today Mr. Raf Simons takes the helm of Christian Dior . He will present his first collection for the house in Paris - a couture collection.
I have been working professionally and independently for a decade , but dreaming up designs since I was four years old.
Because Raf exists, it makes me want to be a better designer. Raf makes me remember what it means to be good.
He sets forth an example that demands more , because he expects more.
In the midst of our busy times : our new studio, our new work and ushering in ten years worth of Slow and Steady Wins the Race philosophies ... today I pause to look and welcome Raf's next wave of brilliance.
Mr. Simons, thank you.
