Balenciaga appoints Demna Gvasalia as new Artistic Director

Wednesday morning marked a great day for this groundbreaking man. You may recall his previous works with the eclectic label Vetements out of Paris. The young 34 year visionary studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp in Belgium (home of the Antwerp 6). Prior to his new arrangements, he lead design teams at Maison Martin Margiela and Louis Vuitton. And now Balenciaga is pleased to announce the appointment of Demna Gvasalia as the new Artistic Director of the Balenciaga collections.

Demna will take creative responsibility for the brand's collections and the image of the maison. He will present his first collection for the brand at the women's ready-to-wear autumn/winter 2016-17 show in Paris.
