. Meant to post this much earlier 🙈!
On 17th March it was announced that #ClaireWaightKeller is the new Artistic Director of #Givenchy. To much shock among the fashion industry given that the aesthetic between Chloé and Givenchy are vastly difference.
Hirer by Tom Ford to work with #Gucci in 2000 as a Senior Designer she stayed with the brand until 2005 where she move onto a Creative Director position with Pringle of Scotland. After a year in 2006 she was given reign to reinvent the brand and here she stayed up until 2011 when she resigned her position citing 'personal reasons'. A few months later Claire's name started circulating again with the announcement that she was the new Creative Director of #Chloe.
After many successful years; rumours stared late last year and were confirmed this January with Claire announcing that the FW17 season would be her last for the brand.
To much shock Givenchy has announced that Claire is to be coming on board this following May with her first season being the highly judged PFW SS18 season in October.
Claire will be the first female appointed as lead of the brand, and the second female over the last year hired for a top job by LVMH Couture International llc. Is this a coming trend with female taking over the lead roles in fashion houses or just a coincidence?
Whatever it is I personally cannot wait to see what changes Claire makes unlike what Maria did with Dior. While her aesthetic is at odds with #RiccardoTisci, I feel she can bring back the sophistication and elegance that Hubert de Givenchy believe in and achieved a la Aubrey Hepburn Tiffany dress.
#NatachaRamsayLevi as a head designer for Balenciaga and Creative Direction of Louis Vuitton background was announced in early March as Chloé's new creative director.
While Riccardo Tisci is heavily rumoured to have already signed with Versace, he has come out stating that he is still trying to decide and that '“There are very interesting things on the table now and I’ll take a decision before summer,”.
What are your opinions on all the moves from the top directors over the last year?s
