From the interview in Fantastic Man (not online):

"My work schedule is intense, but I get by. Maybe I just haven't found the right person yet? I actually like being alone." (Raf Simons)

Simons marvels at the speed of things. "I'm very scared sometimes that fashion might attack its own magic by the amount of exposure," he says. "Is this normal, the speed of fashion? They say there are too many shows, but the nature of fashion is to have it exposed in that moment of ecstasy.

"In the '90s, when a designer showed something, you had the patience to wait until it was in the stores," he continues. "That had a lot of romance and mystique to it. If you want something and you have to wait for it, you enjoy it, probably, longer. If it's just thrown at you the moment you like it, how much are you going to still desire it?"

It's the same with love, Simons muses. "These days, people's perceptions of relationships are very different from 50 years ago. I come from a love nest. My parents—it's just such a love nest. I see a lot of the younger generation switching—whether it's love or a job—not having the patience. Lots of people want to change their reality when they don't see the reality as perfection."

I am about to watch Raf Simons consume a pack of cigarettes in two and a half hours. ‘I started smoking when I split up from Veronique… I had a broken heart,’ he explains of his former girlfriend, the Belgian designer Veronique Branquinho, who he dated for five years at the beginning of his career. This is quite a confession – not the loss of a love that caused him to smoke like a chimney but the fact the love is a ‘she’. It’s not often one gets to meet a heterosexual fashion designer, or at least one who will admit to it. Although later when I ask him to clarify – ‘Does he have a girlfriend at the moment, or a boyfriend, maybe?’ – he just blushes and swerves the question with a ‘Noo no, no, noooo.’

Yes, he was romantically involved for 5 years with Véronique Branquinho. I think he's heterosexual but I don't know for sure:

With people he likes, he can quickly establish an intimacy that confuses both sexes. An American writer I know in Paris, a married man, insisted that Simons was gay on the basis of a firm hug that Simons had once given him after a show, while a woman who has known him many years said with an assured smile, when I returned from Antwerp in May, ''He's complicated, isn't he?''

Source: nytimes.com

Who does he care about most in the world? ‘My mum, my dad… and Robbie,’ he says, describing the much-tattooed young man who used to be the face of Raf Simons and now runs his studio in Antwerp. ‘Robbie is a brother to me… he is my blood. If he said to me, “I can’t stay anymore”, I’m out. I stop everything. I can’t be in fashion without him.’ He says this so passionately, it’s easy to see how people might confuse his sexuality.

The gossip about Richard Chai and Miles McMillan was published in January 2013. Maybe Miles McMillan is dating Zachary Quinto right now...

According to thegloss.com Yigal Azrouël is a heterosexual fashion designer. Back in 2009 he maintained a "friendship" with Katie Lee, Billy Joel's then-wife.

Such an interesting picture of Rick Owens and his wife Michele Lamy; they're kind of like mirrors:

I wonder if their relationship is platonic, although I think he said he's bi. I believe he met her years ago through his then boyfriend. Does anyone know if their marriage is an "open" one? Whatever the case, they seem close, and I thought that picture was cute.

Marc Jacobs and Harry Louis split
Quote:
So I would like to be the first one to share with you all the news... Me and Marc have decided not carry on with our relationship as boyfriends... The distance and lack of time because of work schedules aren't really something realistic, and he's such a beautiful and amazing person, that I think he deserve a bf who will stay at least in one of the cities that he leaves in... Also, I need that too... We love each other very much, and that it was a decision from both!!!! Every special minute we've spent together will be treasured, and a new chapter of our both lives has started... Both of us focusing in work, and make it work!!!! So, for those who were always supportive of us, please don't be sad, live goes on, to all of us... And for those who were praying that this day were coming, there you have... Marc Jacobs and Harry Louis aren't officially a couple anymore!!!!

Well, it's nice that Harry is semi-literate I guess ...
