"Veena Chauhan's Spring 2015 collection stems from a need for structure, chic elegance, color and poignance. The collection is a marriage of old classics with Modern elements, tied with details that are artistic and wearable through multiple seasons of the year"
Add to this the advertising campaigns, personal appearances, store openings, global visits, trunk shows, museum exhibitions, interviews, Instagram - and it's a wonder that any designer is prepared - or able - to keep up the pace.
The statement that Dior sent out this week was amicable but definite. After three and a half years at the helm, Raf Simons would not renew his contract with Christian Dior "for personal reasons". And the show earlier this month - a well-received fusion of Victorian underwear and modernist clothing - would be his last.
"It is a decision based entirely and equally on my desire," said Raf, while thanking Bernard Arnault, Chairman and CEO of LVMH, and Sidney Toledano, Dior's Chief Executive, who returned the compliment.
I have no information on this separation - especially since I am currently in Sydney, Australia. But I remembered one incident: at last year's Frieze art fair I sent a text to Raf, whom I have known since his first edgy, schoolboy looks in menswear 20 years ago. I asked him which tent he was in and where we could meet up. The answer, which is still on my phone, was this: "I really miss it - but the schedules are so tight now with another show in December. Just a terrible agenda."
