I'm just looking forward to a new season where we don't see a re-worked Couture F/W 2008 collection. the kind of collections that Gaytten's been slapping out.

Good news! It seemed destined after his last JS collection, which contained obvious homage to the classic history of the CD label.

after seeing his last collection with jil sanders, i just can't wait for him to take over dior.

i have a mixed feeling about galliano's departure bc it was kind of sad to see galliano go. he had produced so many mesmerizing collections for dior, and at the same time an equal amount of totally forgettable collections.

the house of dior needs someone to give themselve a new breath of fresh air and im sure raf simon can do just that.

Wow you're forgetting Stefano Pilati, who's probably not so happy.

I've never been a fan of his but I will wait till we see what he can do at Dior before I judge.

To be honest I feel a bit sad for Bill.

"Taking a role as couture architect rather than decorator, Mr. Simons has shown ball-gown skirts, albeit with stark white blouses, elegant day dresses in paisley patterns and splashes of Picasso."

Can't wait!!

Mr. Simons vs. Mr. Slimane

It will be interesting..

(team Simons btw!)

Thank god! I've been waiting ever since it first happened. I love that Raf was chosen, his swan song for JS is proof that he's earned it. But the only thing I want to know is Where does Galliano go from here? One of the most talented couturiers in history is out of the picture, and I just want to know what'll happen to him.

Oh such a relief! The Raf Simons option wouldn't have been my first guess or option, but it's great to see that someone innovative is taking over. This is the most important thing I think.

i'm just happy the game of musical chairs has come to an end for a while. as for the house of dior, let's hope raf simons gets some help before he re-imagines the company's accessories lines as his handbags for jil sander left much wanting. second, why would dior retain kris van assche over the menswear given the competition that product line will face from yves saint laurent under hedi slimane?
