The Green Day

Let's go green today, it's Earth Day!

From the eco friendly materials of Stella McCartney, 
to the "origins" choice of the Muzungu Sisters -who select each product with the aim of maintaining the welfare and craft of the artisans producing them, 
to the green styles we have seen during the past Fashion Weeks.

Bienvenue Monsieur Raf

 One of the greatest current talents, he will inspire and propel into the 21st century the style carried on by Dior maison since its creation in 1946.

The long-awaited moment has come. 
Raf Simons has been announced as the new artistic director at Dior.
Rumours were obviously already circulating.
Appointed in 2005 as creative director at Jil Sander, his last three collections for the minimalist brand hinted at the designer's interest in couture shapes and mid-century modernist designs - the period when the Dior brand was founded.
How Simons will translate his own vision for Dior will doubtless be the top question at the show.

His debut collection will be during couture fashion week in Paris in July.
