Belgian fashion designer Raf Simons has signed a contract to work at Prada Fashion House. From now on, he will create collections of clothes together with Miuccia Prada, having equal rights
There have been rumors in the press for a long time that Raf will become the new creative director of this company, but there was no official confirmation. Now, the entire world fashion industry is holding its breath, and is waiting for the new joint collection of Raf and Miuccia to appear. Experts are confident that Simons will be able to bring freshness to the collection of the fashion label.
The designer will start working with Miuccia in early April. Two designers will be able to contribute to the development of the new collection with the same rights. And the result of their first collaboration will be presented in Milan this fall. The spring-summer 2021 collection will be their first work and should be remembered by all fashion representatives as something new and unusual.
It is worth noting that Raf Simons has his own personal clothing brand. Collaboration with Prad does not mean that now the designer will stop creating for his own collection of clothes. It's just that the man could not refuse to cooperate with the global brand, since it is interesting for him. And besides, the fashion brand Prad, for the first time in history, decided to take such a crucial step: to invite another fashion designer to its staff. The fashion house commented on its decision, stating that the modern fashion system is simply obliged to keep up with the times, therefore, they considered cooperation with Raf to be the most correct decision.
There is not much information about Raf Simons, the man does not really like to spread the details of his personal life. However, it is known that he was born and raised in Belgium. In the same country, he graduated from university with a degree in furniture designer. For the first three years, Raf worked in this area, but he felt that this was not his destiny. And when I first visited Paris Fashion Week, I realized what I really wanted to do. In 1995, he already created a personal clothing brand, which a good friend pushed him to.
For three years in a row, he worked at the Dior fashion house, and then he was invited to become the creative director at Calvin Klein. With the latter, he left in 2018, for unknown reasons. How his cooperation with Prad should last. In the meantime, we will wait for the first collection of this amazing union.
