The French fashion house Givenchy and its British designer Clare Waight Keller have announced the end of the fashion designer’s contract as the Creative Director of the fashion brand.
It has been the company itself that has announced it via their social media through a statement signed by Sidney Toledano, president of the LVMH group to which the ‘maison’ belongs. He thanked Waight Keller for her contribution to the brand throughout these three years of full dedication to it:
“I want to warmly thank Clare Waight Keller for her contribution to Givenchy’s latest chapter. Under her creative leadership, and in great collaboration with its ateliers and teams, the Maison reconnected with the founding values of Hubert de Givenchy and his innate sense of elegance. I wish Clare all the best in her future endeavors.”
Keller was appointed Creative Director of Givency in 2017 after Riccardo Tisci left. This new charge confirmed a protest movement for equality that was present on almost all the catwalks of the Fashion Weeks of 2017, and since then that became a reality.
She was, therefore, the first female leader to be part of the LVMH group. Before her, fashion artists of the fashion world such as John Galliano, Alexander McQueen or Julien Macdoland were the ones in charge of drawing the Givenchy’s woman.
