With the departure of Riccardo Tisci, Givenchy has announced its first-ever female creative director.
Clare Waight Keller will handle the men’s and women’s collections and haute couture, starting from May 2.
The former creative director of Chloé is also the second female to ever head up an LVMH house and will showcase her first collection for Spring 2018 in October.
“The teams join me in warmly welcoming Clare Waight Keller into the Givenchy family,” said Givenchy CEO, Philippe Fortunato.
“I am very excited to see Clare bring her singular sense of elegance and modernity to Givenchy. By exploring our maison’s 65-year heritage and the outstanding savoir-faire of its ateliers, I am convinced Clare will help Givenchy reach its full potential.”
