Dior and I – From the Runway to the Red Carpet

DIOR AND I is a tantalising ‘behind-the-seams’ glimpse at the making of Raf Simons’ first haute couture collection for Christian Dior in 2012. Working against the clock with only eight weeks to complete the collection (compared to the usual three month deadline), Simons and his dedicated group of collaborators make his vision a sublime reality.

The collection is the fashion event of the decade, receiving both critical and popular acclaim. In the few months after Raf’s spectacular runway debut, A-list stars like Jennifer Lawrence and Marion Cotillard grace the red carpet wearing stunning gowns from this  landmark collection. The legacy of Christian Dior remains intact as a new and revitalised Dior enters the history books with a radical ‘new look’ that respects the DNA of the legendary house while catapulting it towards an exciting, modern future.

You can read more about the runway show here, and experience the making of the collection in the new film DIOR AND I in cinemas March 26.
