JACK  RAF & JIL went up the hill............
& after 7 yrs at the fashion house, Raf says goodbye to Jil Sander with a sensational collection that earned him a standing ovation, tears in the front row and Anna Wintour showing emotion for the 1st time this season! 
One word........WOW!

 It was a truly beautiful collection, that in my eyes seemed to be inspired by late actress and Princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly. 
One was transformed into a beautiful garden on a spring day were beautiful swans graced the runway in shades of sorbet.

The peaces were timeless and could have been showcased  seasons ago (the 60's) or seasons to come.
So for this to be the final collection that Raf showed for Jil Sander, was extremely impact-full & for this reason, will never be forgotten. 

Designer Raf Simons gestures a tearful good bye to Fashion House Jil Sander.

Editors, PR & other fashion insiders at the show had their emotional heart strings tugged as the show came to a close as well as tears drawn from their eyes as well as that of Raf Simons who came out on his encore moved by the appreciation of the crowd.
