Introducing the new creative director of Balenciaga… (Drum roll, please!)
The news was announced yesterday. French designer Nicolas Ghesquière will be passing the torch to Alexander after 15 years of serving as creative director. So what does this mean for Alexander’s solo career? It seems the successful 28 year old will be continuing with his own company while also embarking on his new role as creative director. Talk about someone who’s dedicated to fashion! Alexander was quoted as saying he is, “deeply honored to embark on this new role for a brand and house that I have such great admiration and respect for.”
No doubt we will be watching closely to see how Alexander’s creativity and styles will put a unique spin on the classic and sophisicated Balenciaga style that we’ve seen over the years. What do you think of Balenciaga’s decision to hire Alexander Wang as creative director? We for one are so excited to see two unbelievable talented fashion icons teaming up together!
