PARIS — “This season I wanted to propose a new woman,” says Christian Dior Artistic Director Raf Simons in the accompanying program to his women’s Fall 2014 ready-to-wear collection. “A woman with power and energy in a very definite way…This season is less about the leisure of the garden and more about the pace of the city.” To that end, gone were the hanging gardens of last season and replaced were they with a surgical white runway. Floral embellishments showed up in the garments as well as the makeup design by Pat McGrath. Hitting this urban runway for Mr. Simons Friday afternoon on the grounds of Musée Rodin were Jessica Bergs, Kia Low, Magdalena Langrova, Tanya K, and Sabrina Ioffreda.
