Following Gabriela Hearst‘s departure, French fashion House Chloé has appointed Chemena Kamali as Creative Director. Hearst ended her three-year stint at the helm of Chloé earlier this year, setting the brand up for success through sustainable and purposeful collections.

Chloé has announced that Chemena Kamali will take over the role immediately. The Germany-born designer and Central Saint Martins graduate made a name for herself working under Phoebe Philo at Chloé, returning in 2013 to work alongside Clare Waight Keller. Most recently, Kamali was Design Director at Anthony Vaccarello‘s Saint Laurent, appointed in 2016 and standing her ground into 2023.

The news comes closely after Paris and Milan Fashion Week, where several renowned designers entered and exited leadership roles, making for uncertain times in the industry. Sarah Burton ended her 26-year run at British House Alexander McQueen, while Sabato De Sarno unveiled his first collection for Gucci, and Stefano Gallici marked the start of his reign at Ann Demeulemeester.

Speaking on her appointment at Chloé, Kamali says:

“My heart has always been Chloé’s. It has been since I stepped through its doors more than 20 years ago. Returning feels natural and very personal. I am extremely honoured to be taking on this role and to be building on the vision that Gaby Aghion and Karl Lagerfeld defined early in the maison’s history. I hope to capture the emotional connection and spirit of Chloé for today.”

Elsewhere, 3.PARADIS FW23 is an elevated streetwear experience.
