    A minimalist Fashion Designer is selected as the new Christian Dior creative designer. For Simmons it was his first time leading a high fashion house and according to the Dior team not the most fitting candidate. To make things worst he only has eight weeks to come out with a new collection. Despite the many challenges, Simmons makes it all come together by believing in himself and not letting his talent and style get overshadowed by the pressures to live up to the legacy of the previous designer and Dior itself.
