It’s being reported that next week Balenciaga will announce NY designer Alexander Wang as their new creative director. Earlier this month the Paris fashion house decided after 15 years to part ways with French designer Nicolas Ghesquière. Shortly thereafter, rumors began to circulate that Wang was the front-runner to replace the position. Still no official confirmations have yet to be made from neither Balenciaga nor the Alexander Wang camp but sources are reporting the deal is done and an announcement will be made no later than next week. What are your feelings about the move as well as the new direction?
