When you just see the setting of today’s Dior show, you remain speechless. With the Beautiful flowers in all hues, your instantly in a new, fascinating World. For Spring, the Dior girl looks as Feminine and as Preppy as can be, but she adds this more fun, and Tropical vibe to her Spring wardrobe. The collection really reflects the many shades of flowers, throughout the runway. As Dior’s Creative director, Raf Simons incorporates all shades, ranging from Neutrals to Brights, and to Soft pastels. Like many designers have been doing for Spring, Raf Simons is very playful with some of the fabrics, adding bright exciting patterns to Black high waisted trenches. But the golden eye makeup, really adds that exciting Dior touch. Looking at the collection, you also see this more preppy and Prestige vibe, as Simons designs many High-waisted trenches, Incorporates Houndstooth, and throughout the finale all the models sport a Chic Houndstooth vibe with their baroque gown, or Feminine black, office like suit. The mix of Preppy and Classy silhouettes, with the Bright hues, and vibrant patterns, is trend seen throughout Paris Fashion Week. But Raf makes his collection really stand out, with his Beautiful Dior clothing, literally reflecting off the Flower scenery hung up above. When Raf takes his bow, you know that this show was the most Stunning, and Most Beautiful yet to be seen. Another success, Raf!
