Reputed fashion blog Fashionista is reporting that Italian designer Riccardo Tisci is set to take over as the new designer for Christian Dior.
“He’s also…openly discussing his move to Dior with certain acquaintances,” writes editor Lauren Sherman. “And while we still don’t think the official Dior announcement will happen until September, we’re pretty sure the deal is sealed.”
Tisci was the most evident choice for many, with French designer Haider Ackermann expected to take his place at Givenchy.
Tisci, who his known for his dark, gothic-inspired take on fashion, would certainly make for a big aesthetic change at Dior after Galliano’s flowerily flamboyant years.
