2. Dior’s Fall 2016 Without Any Creative Director:
After the departure of Raf Simons late last year, the Fall 2016 collection was led by Serge Ruffieux and Lucie Meier and maybe it was lack of direction that the collection wasn’t much concise. The collection didn’t show any reference to the pairing of the pieces. Repeated prints or patterns were seen and that felt very forced. In fact the only thing that felt consistent throughout the show—aside from the black lipstick—were the off-the-shoulder necklines which were found on dresses, coats and blouses. Overall, the show wasn’t a success and saying it a flop would be so inappropriate.
3. Nancy Reagan – U.S. First Lady:
Nancy Reagan who passed away on March 6th 2016,was a former Hollywood actress, the first lady of the United States during President Ronald Reagan’s time in office and the founder of the “Just Say No” drug awareness campaign started in 1982. She indulged in fashion, she wore Oscar and Bill and, most notably “Jimmy.” That would be James Galanos. An American couturier, he worked in California, outside of the Seventh Avenue grind, creating hand-crafted clothes that were technical wonders and wondrously expensive.
