Confirmed: Raf Simons to Take Over at Dior [Updated]

The guessing games are finally over - Raf Simons has just been confirmed as the new designer for Dior. The label is expected to make the official announcement tomorrow, but in an interview on Monday, Simons commented that the position is something he felt was right for him: “The first time I heard about the Dior position, I thought, ‘This feels right.’ ” 

Simons recently unveiled his last collection for Jil Sander for Autumn/Winter 2012 and stepped down in February this year, and now it appears he had known all along what his next move would be. The position at Dior has been left unfilled since last year when John Galliano was fired from the job after a controversial public rant. Watch this space for the Dior announcement!

Update: WWD have confirmed that Simons will unveil his first collection for the label in July at Paris Couture Week.
