Since the eponymous sacking of John Galliano, Dior has been left without a firm hand at its helm. Therefore, the job of designing was left to technician, Bill Gaytten. But of course, he was no Galliano. The seasons came and the seasons went, and it looked as if Gaytten could possibly stay as the head designer until a core shaking announcement in February.
In February it was announced that Raf Simons would be the new designer of the company and that his first collection would be Couture autumn/winter 2012-13. Below is the last collection that Gaytten created for Dior.
Get ready for Raf Simons’ first Couture collection on 14.30 Monday 2nd July 2012.
