Le rythme de l’industrie est tel que les créateurs ne restent rarement plus de trois ans dans leurs maisons. Les designers à l’instar de Nicolas Ghesquière, Riccardo Tisci ou Hedi Slimane n’ont pourtant rien à craindre. Leur seul nom est une marque surpuissante, qui fidélise une clientèle dont le mode de consommation évolue. Le retour du designer star, c’est maintenant.
The breakneck pace of the modern fashion industry now has designers sticking with brands rarely longer then a few seasons. But designers like Nicolas Ghesquière or Hedi Slimane have nothing to fear. They have become brand names that today are just as powerful as the houses they represent. They have their own devoted, media savvy clientele who will follow them wherever they go. The world is facing the second coming of the star designer.
It’s finally official, after 17 years at Valentino and more than 25 years with her creative partner Pierpaolo Piccioli, designer Maria Grazia Chiuri has decided it was time to go solo. It has still not been announced that Chiuri will become the first female fashion designer in the history of Christian Dior, but that is just a formality at this point.
