I've been always fascinated by Dior and its brand image. I think the Maison is one of the most iconic, classy and example of heritage and tradition ever at modern fashion history and a model on the industry.

I wasn't very much on the John Galliano era at the brand: his designs were too lavish, too exaggerated and theatrical on a Maison which foundation I see as getting the most of a design and elegance with the less. Turning simplicity as the maximum to follow.
And then, Raf Simons came. And turned upside down the brand image, returned to its origins. Its essence. And being honest, I think his first collection at the Maison Dior were one of the things which definitely made my heart truly fall in love with fashion. In fact, I even emulated one of their iconic accessories by DIY.

So, as following this holiday's habit I'm getting used to which is illustration, and coming back to use my watercolor pencils, I decided to draw this three styles seen at last week's 2015/2016 Paris Haute Couture Week. I was so impressed seeing the whole collection that I felt like the need to depict it on my sketchbook. The techniques I used were pencil, watercolor pencil and some digital for the background.

  2. I share your thoughts for the Dior maison, I used to like Galliano's era to get inspired, but it was obviously unwearable, and I do prefer Raf Simon's style.
