Week of Breaking News in Fashion

I don't know why, but this week has been full of shakes up in the fashion industry... Everyday something new would be announced before yesterday's other big news would sink in. Here's a recap of the top stories this week:

Raf Simons To Take Over Dior as Head Designer
After more than a year - and a dozen designers being mentioned - of speculation of who will replace Galliano at Dior, it has finally been officially announced that Raf Simons will be. His first collection with the house is the spring couture collection in July.

The Fashion Collective Disbands (Not Really)
The day after the Dior announcement, Toronto Standard broke the news that after two years of being responsible for bringing in young designer to Toronto Fashion Week, The Fashion Collective's has disbanded. Hours after, Toronto Standard retracted the article having only interviewed Kate Mullin. Turns out, Mullin is out but the rest of TFC is still in tact. However, judging from Kennedy and Richard's response, the split wasn't entirely amicable.
Fashion Television Ceases Production After 27 Years
Arguably the biggest news this week, is Jeanne Becker tweeted announced that Fashion Television is kaput. Fashion Television has been a beacon for fashion in Canadian broadcast and for many, including those now working in the industry, was their first exposure to the industry. Low ratings are allegedly to blame but one thing's for sure, it's an end of an era.
