After the haute couture Maison’s show in Paris (Christian Dior Spring 2013 Couture), the head of Christian Dior suit, the U.S. market for high-end luxury goods rebounded in 2012 as the consumer sentiments improved. He said America did better as a strong rebound in spending has been observed on high-end luxury. Dior’s Couture division was getting more orders than its workshop could take and it needs to develop its production capability to handle the demand. Its workshop was so busy that it remained in operation between Christmas and New year. Last year, American women came back strongly. The spring has come early at Dior. The SS13 couture show in this week in Paris shows that RAF Simons embraces the beauty of the spring bride, showing awesome gowns evolving from sky shades to floral masterpieces on the runway. Simons tried to make it sure that he has stayed true to the heritage of Dior, but there was a futurism in his Haute Couture vision. There were modern updates of the Dior archive like the skirts and shapes of the jackets. There’s no doubt that these awesome dresses will be worn by Hollywood’s starlets next month at the Academy Awards ceremony.
