Clare Waight Keller is leaving the post of Givenchy creative director. This heartbreaking news was announced in the official Givenchy ******* account. Waight Keller, in her turn, wrote a touching farewell post thanking everyone she had to work with for three years:

“After three truly wonderful years, the time has come to close my chapter at Givenchy.

 As the first woman to be the Artistic Director of this legendary Maison, I feel honoured to have been given the opportunity to cherish its legacy and bring it new life.

Focusing on a world based on Haute Couture has been one of the highlights of my professional journey. I have shared so many incredible moments with the brilliant Givenchy ateliers and design teams: your exceptional talent and dedication will forever remain in my memories.

My heartfelt thanks go out to each of the unsung heroes and heroines behind the scenes, for their contribution from product to communications and retail, and every global team member, partner and supplier in between.

Without all of you, I could not have brought my vision for Givenchy to life in such a beautiful way.”

Clare Waight Keller became Creative Director of Givenchy in the spring of 2017 after leaving Chloé. In a very short time the designer managed to create more than 30 collections as well as a wedding dress for Meghan Markle, to collaborate with Ariana Grande and take part in the Pitti Uomo exhibition. World celebrities such as Gal Gadot, Rachel Weisz, Rooney Mara, Charlize Theron, Julianne Moore, Anne Hathaway, Rosamund Pike, Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez, Rihanna, and Grimes walked the red carpet in Waight Keller’s gowns and couture designs.
