Dior's Next Two Collections Will Be Designed By In-House Team

(Relaxnews) - In the wake of Raf Simons' departure as creative director of Dior, the French fashion house has revealed that its next two collections will be designed by its in-house team.

The news, reported by WWD, suggests fashion-lovers may need to wait longer than expected to find out who will be taking over as the brand's next couturier.

The in-house studio will undertake the spring 2016 couture collection, coming to the runway in January, as well as the fall 2016 ready-to-wear line, a Dior spokersperson confirmed to WWD.

Raf Simons announced in late October that he would be leaving Christian Dior after more than three years as creative director, citing a "desire to concentrate on other centres of interest in my life, notably my own label, as well as the passions that motivate me beyond my professional activities."
