Why do all the great designers leave? Balenciaga's creative designer Nicolas Ghesquiere has annouced his departure.
According to WWD "The designer and the fashion house are citing a 'joint decision to end their working relationship' effective Nov.30."
Seriously who will be able to replace Ghesquiere? Joining Balenciaga in 1997 he transformed the house to an upbeat, trendsetting label with fashions shows that are always filled with the most important people in the industry.
Francois-Henri Pinault following statement: "Cristobal Balenciaga was a master, a genius whose avant-garde vision dictated fashion's greatest trends and inspired generations of designers. With an incomparable creative talent, Nicolas has brought to Balenciaga an artistic contribution essential to the unique influence of the house." WWD
Let's just hope who ever replaces Nicolas is just as brilliant!
