ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION STORY: A colourful yet eerie pleasure garden greeted guests to the Dior fashion show in Paris on Friday (September 27), as artistic director Raf Simons unveiled a flowery and feminine ready-to-wear collection. For Dior's Spring/Summer 2014 show at Paris fashion week, Simons took inspiration from the interplay between nature and the artificial for his exploration of modernity that featured asymmetrical shapes and freeing silhouettes. Pleats were predominant, asymmetry ubiquitous and bursts of electric orange, yellow and green peppered the collection. A scaffolding erected inside the gardens of the Musee Rodin was hung with brightly hued orchids and vines, some real and some artificial. Celebrity guests included Thailand's Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana and supermodel Natalia Vodianova as well as Dior regulars such as French former top model Estelle Lefebure, who described the show as "moving".
