"Dior and I"

In 2012, legendary French fashion house, Christian Dior Couture, announced designer Raf Simons as its head Creative Director. Dior and I pays homage to the work of the talented Dior atelier and takes a privileged, behind-the-scenes look at the makings of Simons’ debut haute couture collection and how it returned to the origins of the house of Dior. Film & TV distributor The Orchard has acquired all rights in the U.S. and Canada to director Frédéric Tcheng’s fashion documentary Dior and I, which premiered at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival to outstanding praise. This marks the third fashion film for Tcheng, who previously co-wrote and co-directed Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel and co-produced Valentino: The Last Emperor. The documentary captures the entire process behind Raf Simons debut couture collection in his new position as Creative Director of Christian Dior Couture.

The film is slated for a 2015 theatrical release in the U.S. and Canada.

John Galliano is Back!

John Galliano is back! He joins Maison Martin Margiela as their Creative Director with his "debut" collection next January during Paris Couture Week.

I remember Galliano from his early days, when he was working hard to find his footing. One of my favorite memories, that made me fall in love with him, was watching backstage footage during rehearsals and a bleached-blonde Galliano was directing a young Kate Moss to think Irving Penn while running (not walking) down the runway... "run Kate, run"... he yelled. I've been a fan ever since. So you can imagine my shock and devastation when he went on his drunken anti-Semitic rant at a Paris cafe. He got fired from Christian Dior, rightfully so. 

A sober and remorseful John Galliano has been given a second chance and it will be interesting to see the direction he takes Margiela given that his aesthetic differs from theirs. No doubt that all eyes will be on Paris Couture Week.

Christian Dior Fall 2014 Couture

Raf Simons took Dior on a redefining time-travel journey for Fall 2014 couture. From Marie Antoinette silhouettes to astronaut-ish silk jumpers, Dior's creative director may have been making a greater statement about the future of not only the legendary maison but of haute couture in general. In the simplest terms, as our world changes, inevitably so must everything in it. Haute Couture must evolve. But this evolvement doesn't come without its share of controversy and criticism. Some believe Raf Simons has simplified couture too much in an attempt for modernization - Making it too casual. Perhaps he's thinking of the next generation of clientele? A younger class of the elite uber-rich who've grown up in the same fast-paced, technological society that we have. As for Dior's Fall couture collection, it's beautiful. There are some very choice pieces with lavish embroidery and full length furs. Even with its modernity, couture will remain an exclusive club for a specific client base. View Collection:

The walls were lavishly blanketed in fresh flowers, reportedly, 1M. In the front row, the world's top designers: 

Donatella

Versace

, Riccardo

Tisci

, Marc Jacobs,

Alber

Elbaz,

Diane

von

Furstenberg and more, eagerly awaited, in support of their colleague and friend.

In what has been called the most anticipated show of the season, designer

Raf

Simons

did not disappoint.

The runway:

Christian Dior

Haute

Couture Fall 2012.

The big deal:

Raf

Simons's

debut collection for the legendary house. Fashion critics have referred to the couture collection as possessing the "

appropriate balance of reverence and iconoclasm."  A fitting, if not perfect, juxtaposition as the modernist designer takes over the iconic label.
