Christian Dior told WWD that the January Spring 2016 haute couture and March Autumn/Winter 2016 collections will not be designed by a creative director. Instead, the existing in-house team is taking the reins.

Dior has yet to announce a replacement for Raf Simons, who left the maison in October. The good news is that these two collections will likely be still along the lines of Raf's influence, without a new creative director around to change things up. So those who loved what Raf did for Dior and are lamenting his departure can probably look forward to seeing more of his aesthethic, at least until AW16.
