“Every designer should strive to make a difference, to question things, to find a way of having a dialogue with their audience. That is the most satisfying part for a designer, if your brain and heart is very much about creation.”
-Raf Simons, Creative Director at Dior
Just a little motivation (no matter what you’re working on this Monday) inspired by the Miss Dior exhibition I went to see today. Just an hour and a half wait in line and my friends and I were privy to a roomful of the designer’s influences, from his childhood and sister to architecture and gardens, as well as a handful of other artists who were fostered by Dior’s artistic mark. All in all, it was an eye-opening experience filled with art and history – two of my favorite subjects. The museum even provided its guests with free iPod headsets with additional information. Stay classy, Dior.
Which designer do you think should put on a exhibit next?
(I’m keeping my fingers crossed for an Alexander Queen at the Met round 2, but I’d kind of have a mild heart attack if Yves Saint Laurent held one).

P.s. Did you know Dior named the first perfume “Miss Dior” in honor of his sister Catherine? Now that’s sibling love.
