Thanks To Raf Simons, Dior Sales Jumped 24 Percent In 2012
It’s safe to say that the Christian Dior execs who hired Raf Simons must be giving themselves a big pat on the back right about now.
The designer took the reins at the Paris house back in April, and recent figures indicate that his wares are selling like hotcakes. WWD reports that sales for Christian Dior Couture rose 24 percent in 2012, reaching $1.59 billion.
“These results reaffirm the exceptional quality of Dior’s products and the powerful appeal of its stores,” the company said. Not bad for only ten months on the job!
