There’s no drama like fashion drama!
Nicolas Ghesquière will end his 15-year reign as the creative director of Balenciaga on Friday, but speculation on who will take over for the storied house is still high.
Now, Cathy Horyn of the New York Times claims that wunderkind Alexander Wang may be the one to fill in for the acclaimed Ghesquière, stating:
Alexander Wang appears to be the leading candidate to succeed the star designer Nicolas Ghesquière, and an announcement of his appointment could be made as early as next week.
Next week?! But we want to know now!
Though we like Wang’s work, we wonder if he has the experience, maturity, and skill to take on such a high-pressure role at such a venerable fashion house. Although, he is three years older than Ghesquière was when he took on creative director duties.
Well, guess only time will tell!
Good luck, Alexander!
