It's official: Natacha Ramsay-Levi is the new creative director of Chloé
The speculation has come to an end. Fashion house Chloé just named Natacha Ramsay-Levi as its new creative head.
Replacing Clare Waight Keller (who ended her tenure with a stellar fall/winter 2017 show in Paris), Ramsay-Levi will be responsible for carrying the ready-to-wear, leather goods, and accessories departments.
Ramsey-Levi is currently completing her final month as Louis Vuitton's creative director for women's ready-to-wear, aka the right-hand woman of artistic director Nicholas Ghesquière, with whom she interned in 2002, and then soon after, worked alongside, for over a decade at Balenciaga.
"I am very proud to join a house founded by a woman to dress women," she said. "I want to create fashion that enhances the personality of the woman who wears it, fashion that creates a character and an attitude, without ever imposing a 'look'."
Geoffroy de la Bourdonnaye, President of Chloé, also released a statement: "I am particularly happy to welcome Natacha to Chloé. Her extensive experience at two prestigious fashion houses and her creative energy will further expand the Maison in Gaby's vision: at the intersection of Parisian couture savoir-faire and the youthful attitude of the Chloé girl."
Ramsey-Levi's first collection for Chloé will be unveiled this September, during Paris Fashion Week for spring/summer 2018.
