Anonymous: Hi Demi, I was just wondering what is your opinion was on Raf Simon's appointment as creative director of Dior. Do you think he is a good fit and do you think it is a good creative direction given the current volatility of the industry as a whole?
I’m just glad they finally made a decision. If we can’t have Galliano and his theatrics back then why not? I think Raf has the ability to make Dior more commercially viable but hopefully his collections for the house will inspire too. Next season will be very interesting..

Anonymous: favourite fall 2012 shows so far?
Prada, Proenza and Jil Sander. But mostly Prada. I haven’t looked at anything from Paris properly yet.
: Hello there! This is a bit out of the blue i know but i'm looking for some help re a dissertation i'm writing on McQueen. I'm focusing on three of his shows, 'The Birds' 'Voss' and 'Horn of Plenty', but what i'm unsure about is whether he created all the pieces for 'Voss' before or after leaving Givenchy? They seemed to have happened all at the same time and i can't find anywhere that lays it out chronologically clearly. Sorry for such a long question, thanks for any help! x
Voss was shown in September 2000 and McQueen’s final collection for Givenchy (Fall 2001) was 2 low-key presentations in March 2001. Hope that helps!

Anonymous: I was just wondering, did you like Savage Beauty, the book?
I flicked through it briefly at the book store, but I haven’t looked at it properly
I think I never bought it because I’m still bitter I missed the NY exhibition by a couple of weeks.. but I am also put off by the fact that all the images are of his clothing on “mannequins”. I’m not really sure I like that idea because I think it further promotes the false idea that McQueen’s clothes were ‘unwearable’. You know what I mean?? I was just sort of disappointed in it
