Dior | The hunt for a New Creative Director Goes on…

It’s becoming hailed amongst top fashion circles as the leading job that no one wants.

As the rumour mill has been rife about who would take over as creative director at Dior since John Galliano’s public exit, names have come in and out of the running.

The latest to be considered is Alexander Wang after the initial three contenders – Haider Ackermann, Marc Jacobs and Riccardo Tisci – have been ruled out. “For Dior, it’s a pretty tricky situation, as the three favourites really can’t take the job,” a source close to LVMH said.

“Haider Ackermann is said to be ‘way too edgy’ for Dior; Marc Jacobs wanted the job a lot, but LVMH wants him to stick with Vuitton; and Riccardo Tisci simply refused, saying that he was feeling more than comfortable with the job at Givenchy. So nobody’s taking over so far.”

Another possibility could be Canadian born, young talent, Erdem after fashion journalist and commentator, Colin Mcdowell, wrote to Dior CEO, Sidney Toledano, to recommend him.
