On February 25th the house of jill sanders said farewell to its creative director of 7 years Raf simons it was a heart felt show. Flowers were displayed in cases all around the room so one commented "its like a funeral" the show played beautiful music and rafs best collection walked down the runway, he truly left on a high. During the final walkthrough there were even crying models it was a tearful moment!!!! Then raf appeared to a standing ovation with cheering, quite a reception they even called for an encore this time he appeared with tears in his eyes truly a beautiful final show and a beautiful moment!!!

First collection
Rafs frist collection was spring 2006 seven seasons ago. He was hired after jil sander quit and now jil is replacing raf . He first established himself as a minamilst designer who always showed tailoring he also continued and evolved the jil sander legacy. Each season he improved on his work. He is now not only famous for minimalist tailoring but 50s couture which is actually a new development for raf since spring 2011 he has shown a 50s couture influence. Spring 2011 was his real breakthrough collection and launched him to a sort of superstardom in the fashion world and ever season since he has shown on of the top shows of the season i'm sure his final season will be no different!!
