Givenchy Announces Departure of Clare Waight Keller

Read Waight Keller’s official statement here.

Clare Waight Keller, the British designer largely lauded for returning Givenchy to its aesthetic roots, is ending her three-year tenure as Artistic Director of the famed fashion house.

The brand publicly announced Waight Keller’s departure in an Instagram post. “Givenchy wants to warmly thank Clare Waight Keller for her creative leadership, in contribution to our latest chapter,” the caption reads. Over the course of her stint at the label, Waight Keller dressed Meghan Markle for her royal wedding and brought Givenchy back to Paris Couture Week. Following Riccardo Tisci‘s 12-year helm, Waight Keller’s reign was marked by a pronounced return to classic house codes, a sharp contrast with Tisci’s experimental and subversive designs.

Waight Keller shared an official statement on her departure:

“I have shared so many incredible moments with the brilliant Givenchy ateliers and design teams: your exceptional talent and dedication will forever remain in my memories. My heartfelt thanks go out to each of the unsung heroes and heroines behind the scenes, for their contribution from product to communications and retail, and every global team member, partner and supplier in between.

At the moment, it’s unclear what Waight Keller’s next move is. Givenchy, which shuttered factories due to the coronavirus pandemic, says that it will announce new creative leadership at a later date.
