Posted Thursday May 8, 2014 9:30 AM GMT

Raf Simons always seems to know the perfect way to showcase his creations, and last night (May 7) the Christian Dior Cruise 2015 lineup lit up the Brooklyn Navy Yard in New York City.

With a total of 66 different ensembles, the fast-paced presentation was well-received by critics and spectators alike.

Dior even invited a slew of celebrities for a spike in exposure, including Rihanna, Margot Robbie, Marion Cotillard, Allison Williams, and Linda Evangelista.

Of his collection, Simons explained to WWD, “I wanted to deal with [the carré] in a different way. Not as a styling element around the neck. I wanted to see how can we use that as an element [of design], and see how I could deal with prints and flowers in a different way. I wanted to touch on elements of Dior history but also link to what I feel when I am in New York.”

Raf also gushed over his time in NYC. “I’m here for two years and the response from the American women is [strong]. New York has always been a city of energy and strength. I walk through the city and I see all these women and I think strength and energy and conviction.”
