From Humble Beginnings
Headline: Monsieur simons: Raf Simons at Dior
After reading this article my faith in a happily ever after in a design related field has been restored. The Vogue article tells of Raf Simons rise from Jil Sander to the Couture world of Christian Dior. This article describes Mr. Simons early humble beginnings, and how hard work and talent out weighed the who you know and where you come from. The article also appeals to Timo Rissensan’s ideal to show process in the work. It is inspiring to see how an artist such as Simons works and creates. It is inspiring to hear of someone from humble beginnings to grow as a designer and become the head of such a prestigious house like Dior.
