As of April 3, Natacha Ramsay-Levi will be Chloe’s creative director of ready-to-wear, leather goods and accessories.

Levi will show her first collection for Chloe in September at Paris Fashion Week for the spring-summer 2018 season.

The fashion veteran was former creative director for women’s ready-to-wear at Louis Vuitton under artistic director Nicolas Ghesquiere, whom she also worked with at Balenciaga for 11 years.

“I am very proud to join a house founded by a woman to dress women. I want to create fashion that enhances the personality of the woman who wears it, fashion that creates a character and an attitude, without ever imposing a ‘look’,” Levi says.

Chloe’s president, Geoffroy de la Bourdonnaye, also expresses his excitement: “Her extensive experience at two prestigious fashion houses, and her creative energy, will further expand the Maison in Gaby (Aghion)’s vision: at the intersection of Parisian couture savoir-faire and the youthful attitude of the Chloe girl”.

Chloe confirmed the departure of former creative director Keller in January, and she presented her last collection for the brand in Paris last week.
