Over the past decades, Raf Simons has grown into a name like a clock in the fashion world. He has been creative director of Prada since April 2020, but previously also held the same position at Dior and Calvin Klein. He founded his own label in 1995 in our country. That is why he quickly gained international fame and got one top job after another.
Marc Jacobs, among others, already responded on Instagram to the imminent end of Simons’ label. “Thank you Raf, for the wonderful years full of inspiration,” he writes.
