Coming to Chloé as creative director in 2020, Gabriela Hearst’s farewell to the brand after 3 years resonated as much as her arrival.
The Uruguayan design genius, who embarked on the adventure of creating a brand with 3 friends while working as a sales consultant in New York, managed to turn all eyes on her with the ready-to-wear brand she founded under her own name in 2015. While her success without having a design education told in ear, the CFDA Womenswear Designer of the Year Award she won in 2020 made brands very appetizing.
Meanwhile, there are already new names for Chloé’s position like Chemena Kamali, who is currently design director of women’s ready-to-wear at Saint Laurent.
So much so that, Hearst’s latest Chloé and its new creative director is a curiosity for the fashion world.
