Raf has created something really beautiful. It was what you hoped for and more – it was such a beautiful homage to Dior, a mix of the modern, clean and unexpected with a real lightness of touch, the mood pre show as filled with expectation and hope. This same mood of hope and expectation could be seen on the catwalk as Simons married his architectural background with elegant femininity to present a new vision which had the Twittersphere erupting with applause as soon as the show began. The front row of the show was littered with the fashion A List including US Vogue editor Anna Wintour, whom I’m sure gave Raf Simons' her seal of approval and no one could wish for more than that.
Look out there will be more from the Haute Couture Autumn/ Winter 2012-13 Catwalks, on my Blog this week. In the mean time get all the latest from http://www.vogue.co.uk
