@Telefashion Holland must be bare. All its flowers at #Dior couture. Walls smothered with them. And there are a lot of walls
@annadellorusso New sophisticate era starting with #RafSimons at #Dior couture. Superbe!
@Dior Pastel colours, one of the Dior staples, are injected through the embroidered feathers on evening dresses.
@susiebubble Was more disappointed there wasn’t MORE innovation on Raf’s part - that fused with Dior’s ID would have been DA BOMB!
@IamMademoiselle Dior Live stream crashed at the point of the yellow dress. NON!!!!!
@BritishVogueMore elegant than elegant - the verdict is in on Raf Simons’ debut for @Dior #PFW
@MotelRocks Speaking of florals, how beautiful was the flower-filled Dior Haute Couture show! #dior #couture
@readysetfashion Raf’s first collection for Dior was exactly what he needed to produce for the house. He stamped his Sander success on every look. #Dior
@fashedatlarge This live stream is good @diorcouture. So far so beautiful. This is exactly what I expected it to be
@janegrazia The #Dior finale. Raf Simons nails it
