Following the departure of Ricardo Tisci as creative director at Givenchy, the next question was who would be next to take over the vacated seat. According to WWD, Virgil Abloh is said to be one of the top names to replace Tisci. Both parties have declined to comment on this development. Abloh has not been shy about his desire to lead a large fashion house. According to Abloh, “My trajectory is to update and provide something new in the fashion industry by way of creating a project and using it as a case study on how to update a luxury house.” Word is that Givenchy had its eye on Abloh when he won the LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers. LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton owns Givench.
