Previously, Ghesquière spent 15 years at Balenciaga, a once ailing French womenswear brand which he transformed into one of the world’s most forward-thinking luxury brands and the hottest ticket at Paris Fashion Week with his sculptural tailoring and advanced fabrics.

In a statement, Louis Vuitton said Ghesquière would bring “a modern creative vision to the house’s women’s collections, building on the values of refinement, savoir faire and extreme quality.”

“Louis Vuitton has always incarnated for me the symbol of ultimate luxury, innovation and exploration. I am very honoured of the mission that I am entrusted with, and proud to join the history of this great maison. We share common values and a vision,” said Ghesquière.  (Source: Business of Fashion)
