Raf Simons

Raf Simons’ undeniable influence on the fashion industry is a result of his genius blend of minimalism, youth-culture, a strong conceptual foundation and meticulous detail pertaining to proportions. Founding his label in 1995, Raf Simons’ internship under the wing of Walter Van Beirendonck is what truly piqued his interest in fashion, where before his focus was primarily diverted to architectural design and furniture. Raf Simons’ has recently retired from creative direction at his namesake label, but from his time at Dior, Jil Sander, Prada and even Calvin Klien, it’s safe to say Simons may be regarded as one of the greatest to ever partake in his craft.
