Hello October! We're back with some bite-sized fashion news to keep you updated about the always-busy fashion world. Here's a fashion news flash just for you.
Alexander McQueen Named Seán McGirr as Creative Director
Following Sarah Burton's departure from Alexander McQueen after 14 years working as Lee Alexander McQueen's successor, the British luxury house named Seán McGirr as their new creative director. The Irish-born London-based designer previously oversaw JW Anderson's ready-to-wear collection. He also worked at Dries Van Noten, Burberry, and Uniqlo. Let's look forward to what McGirr will bring to the table.
Chemena Kamali is Chloé's New Creative Director
Paris Fashion Week was not only Sarah Burton's last show but also Chloé's creative director Gabriela Hearst. A day after McGirr's announcement, Chloé's new direction will be led by Chemena Kamali. While McGirr is relatively a newcomer, Kamali-who most recently worked at Saint Laurent-began her career at Chloe, working as part of Phoebe Philo's team and later as a designer under Clare Waight Keller. A full circle moment, we would say.
