Calvin Klein and Raf Simons

Recently male and female creative directors for Calvin Klein, Francisco Costa and Italo Zucchelli quit. They were replaced by Raf Simons ex creative director at Christian Dior. I'm not very familiar with Raf but I know that Francisco will be a hard act to follow, he has experience at Tom Ford and Gucci, he also won the CDFA's womenswear designer of the year award in 2006 and 2008. Francisco also created outfits for Calvin Klein that made it on the red carpet and many more. Although Francisco did an amazing job during his fourteen years with Calvin Klein, Raf could also do great things for the company. Raf did work at Dior for twelve years and from what I have read he was well liked over there and will be missed. Raf joining the company was officially announced on August 2, from now on he will be watched to see what he is going to do for the company.

When I first got into fashion design it was in the beginning of my eighth grade year. I started designing some of my own clothing and getting really interested in the subject. I even plan on going to a fashion design college and majoring in fashion and minoring in business. I have looked at many great fashion colleges and one of my favorites is the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. I looked at the list of alumni and saw that Calvin Klein was on it, that's one of the many reasons how I know it's a good school. I would love to intern at a fashion design company and although it's a long shot, Calvin Klein is at the top of that list.
