OMG OMG !! this news totally made my day.

I'm so happy, he's taking over Dior, this is beyond for me.
After his leaving Jil Sander, he couldn't take any less.

ahaha I'm hyperventilating

Wow, that is the very definition of "breath of fresh air". The challenge and the expectations that Simons is going to face from now on are huge and I can't wait!

Yeah, things are looking grim for KVA.

Im sooo happy! This is a much needed breathe of fresh air into the dusty french houses. His last collection for JS brought tears to my eyes and I can not WAIT to see his workmanship in couture!

LOVE!

Never been a fan but anyone is better than Bill. I'm just really hoping this isn't the end of diversity at Dior. So many amazing regulars will probably be dropped in favor of his "sterile" looking favorites.

This news made me cry of happiness and then smile really wide at the same time
Deep inside my heart I always hoped that Raf would get this position and now when it happened I'm absolutely thrilled and cannot wait to see his first collection for the house. Now I'm looking forward to July to see his couture creations.

Personally I'm hoping he really will be a "breath of fresh air" to Dior; I hope he'll bring something very different, and I mean different from the Dior-application collections he's been showing lately which have failed to wholly interest me.

*screams in the middle of class*

HALLELUJAH! PRAISE THE LORD! MY PRAYERS HAVE BEEN ANSWERED!

I'm so happy for Raf, he truly deserves this job. And i'm even more happy this saga finally ended, and they made the right decision. He'll do a stellar job there, i'm sure of it. Dior was desperately needing a breath of fresh air, a new vision and a new direction, and Raf will deliver that.

Oh my god, next season will be legendary. Jil's comeback, Hedi's comeback and the beginning of a new era at Dior. Just when you think fashion was getting boring...

I think he will be a great success to the press and media if he can execute his collections as exceedingly well as he did at Jil Sander. My only concern is what the consumer will think of his designs. But maybe he can surprise us like he usually does with his Jil Sander collections.

How sad I really hoped they`d forgive Galliano, since he deserves it!

Think of Raf Simons what you will but Dior is DEFINITLY the WRONG job for him!

Simons represents avantgarde & minimalism like no other but when it comes to Dior I expect luxury, opulence, classicism, femininity and maybe a little kitsch.
There is no way Raf can pull that off.

^but that isn't the only thing dior himself represented. he was a master at volume,cutting,manipulations of material.....these are also attributes raf simons is extremely talented at. and kitsch....raf can do kitsch very well too. do you not remember his own collections? the influence from youth culture? and who knows,this could bring out another side of raf completely unexpected as he did at jil sander.
