Chloé, a French fashion house, has confirmed that its Creative Director Clare Waight Keller will leave the brand after six years. The womenswear collection that she will present in Paris on 2nd March, 2017 will be her last.
According to a release issued by the fashion label, Clare’s departure is a mutual decision between her and the management led by Geoffroy de La Bourdonnaye, Chief Executive Officer of Chloé, who hired the British designer in May 2011 following the leaving of Hannah MacGibbon.
“After six extraordinary years at Chloé, I would like to thank Geoffroy and all my colleagues for their enormous efforts over the past years. Working for this Maison has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career. Chloé is a brand with values close to my heart and I have truly enjoyed working with some of the best talents in the industry,” Keller said.

If rumours are anything to go by, then Natacha Ramsay-Levi is presumably going to succeed Waight Keller. She worked first at Balenciaga and then at Louis Vuitton, where she is currently In Charge of Design.
However, the information is yet to be confirmed by the fashion house.
