Ever dreamed of attending a fashion show, collegiettes? How about a fashion show organized especially for you?
For this year’s Dior Couture Spring 2014 Fashion Show, creative director Raf Simons invited some special guests—the best fashion students from around the world, as well as employees from its own ateliers, to watch an exclusive show. Students from sixteen schools were invited to participate, including the Royal College of Arts in London, Bunka Fashion College in Tokyo and Parsons School of Design in New York.
The real treat was when Dior allowed the guests an exclusive preview of the collection, where no one else had access. Though several of the students had attended fashion shows in the past, many had never attended a haute couture show, and no one could claim getting such an elite sneak peak at the collection!
“It’s wonderful to connect with students and the atelier people, who don’t normally get to see the show,” Simons said. “I think as a student you shouldn’t think about the system, but just what you really, really believe in, and in the beginning reach out to other people who believe in it, rather than those who are in control.”
We can’t wait to drool over the Christian Dior Haute Couture Spring 2014 collection ourselves!
