Clare Waight Keller

Clare Waight Keller is leaving Givenchy, the designer confirmed in an Instagram post on Friday. A replacement has not yet been named.

The British designer took the helm at Givenchy just three years ago, accepting the role of artistic director in March 2017. Waight Keller succeeded Riccardo Tisci, who held a 12-year tenure at Givenchy before moving to Burberry.

Prior to Givenchy, Waight Keller spent six years in the top design role at Chloé.

“After three truly wonderful years, the time has come to close my chapter at Givenchy,” Waight Keller wrote in her post. “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.”
