Following rumors dating back to December of last year, the Jil Sander group has confirmed that Raf Simons will step down as Creative Director. In a mutual agreement, both parties announced the move will be made official on February 27, 2012. Jil Sander released the following statement:

Raf Simons was appointed JIL SANDER Creative Director on the 1st of July 2005 with his first collection being Men’s Fall/Winter 2006. The Women’s Fall/Winter 2012 collection will be his last for the company.

JIL SANDER thanks Raf Simons for his dedicated commitment to the brand, throughout these years, and wishes him the very best for the future. Jil Sander Group will communicate the appointment of a new Creative Director in the next few days.

The next question that most are wondering is where will Raf Simons land? All signs point to Dior, as the famed fashion house has had a vacant position for a year, with many thinking its the perfect landing spot for the Belgian designer. What are your thoughts on these latest developments?

Rita Ora - Patience & Persistence

Meet Rita Ora. A 21-year old British recording artist signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label. While the world first witnessed her in Drake’s music video for “Over,” the chanteuse of Kosovo-Albanian descent has quite a rich musical history despite her young age. In December, she teamed up with DJ Fresh for his new single “Hot Right Now” which has climbed to the top of the UK charts. As Ms. Ora shared with us, she believes in timing. Hence, it is more than right that she is currently finalizing her still untitled soulful debut album following the success of the drum & bass and dubstep infused single. We sat down with her in London and found out about her diverse background, her come up on the music, her move to Roc Nation and much more.
