Marc Jacobs - Marc Jacobs: Raf Simons' Dior Collection Was 'Magnificent'

Marc Jacobs says Raf Simons' debut Dior collection was ''absolutely magnificent''.

Raf's first show for the fashion house - which was attended by Marc, Riccardo Tisci, Donatella Versace, Diane von Furstenberg and Alber Elbaz - has received universal praise from the fashion world with his fellow designers lining up to shower him with compliments.

Donatella said: ''Before the show, I found it difficult to imagine what Raf would do at Dior but from the very first look today it made total sense.''

Alber added: ''[It was] absolutely poetic. It was perfection. Today was a beautiful marriage between a designer and a house.''

Diane tweeted: ''Raf Simons did a SUPERB Dior show! Very DIOR! Another talented Belgian! Love Diane. (sic)''

Meanwhile Lucinda Chambers, Vogue fashion director told ''It was what you hoped for and more - it was such a beautiful homage to Dior, a mix of the modern, clean and unexpected with a real lightness of touch. It was more elegant than elegant and he trod a brilliant line of being him and being respectful of Dior, I loved it.''

LVMH chairman Bernard Arnault was delighted he took a year to appoint John Galliano's successor, telling WWD: ''I didn't want to rush. It was really a question of choosing the best person for the job, and he stood head and shoulders above the rest: the greatest talent of the moment for Dior, the greatest house in the world.''
