Paper To Runway: Since the house of Christian Dior was founded designers at the helm would collaborate with artists who would create magnificent fashion illustrations in order to immortalise collections and pieces, as well as to reflect the suble simplicity of one’s designs. Creative director for the house Raf Simons is carrying on this tradition by enlisting the skilled hand of New York based artist Mats Gustafson, whose delicate monotonous paintings portray gowns from the Christian Dior Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2014 collection, and with each watercolour stroke he perfectly captures the modern minimalistic elegance which is of course the essence of the 21st century Dior woman. image via.
