Josh Goot
Firmly focused on bold colors and strong silhouettes, Sydney-based designer Josh Goot recalls the work of Balenciaga and Christopher Kane — not bad comparisons to earn, really. He has long been on the radar for fashion insiders like blogger Elin Kling and model Miranda Kerr, but isn’t necessarily a household name in the States yet. If you’re having a hard time finding Goot’s wares at the stores back home, there are a handful of his kaleidoscopic-print party dresses on eBay right now. Check it out.

Dior Wars
By Sade Lythcott
It’s official. The Dior lightsaber has officially been passed from John Galliano to Raf Simons. Nostalgic as some might be for the the frivolity and irreverence of Galliano, Dior couldn’t be in more deserving hands. Read this December’s Vogue article on Simons to get to know the designer and his aesthetic better. In the article, Raf expresses his great humility about such an important opportunity as the new creative director of Dior. In the article, he gives homage to his roots. “I am super proud of my parents—my mother was a cleaning lady, and my father was a night watchman in the army,” says Simons, “and now I stand in this world, and yeah, it’s a bourgeois environment, in a house that’s seen in France as the most important position in fashion, along with Chanel. But I don’t care about that. What I find amazing is that it’s a beautiful house where I can make clothes to make women happy. I was raised in a very happy nest by very happy people, and I like to think that those are enough ingredients to make me succeed at Dior.”
We wish Simons the best of luck. Check out Simons first collection for Dior here. Thoughts?
