Paris Couture: Christian Dior

Raf Simons’ triumphant debut saw him take the traditional Dior ‘New Look’ and update it for a modern couture audience.

The autumn 12 collection was simple and almost like ready-to-wear but stunned audiences around the world, with the fashion industry deeming it an immediate success.

Key outfits included ballgown skirts chopped at the upper thigh, which were teamed with cigarette pants, and belted trouser suits. Statement eveningwear took the guise of striking strapless gowns in lime and leafy green dappled prints, white organza and of course Dior red.

Pictures to follow….
