PARIS French fashion house Chloe said on Friday it had named Natacha Ramsay-Levi as its creative director, responsible for all ready-to-wear, accessories and leather goods.
Chloe, owned by Compagnie Financière Richemont (CFR.S), said Ramsay-Levy will take over from April 3 and present her first collection for the label in Paris in September.
Ramsay-Levi has been second-in-command to Louis Vuitton designer Nicolas Ghesquiere since 2013, having worked with him for more than a decade at Balenciaga (PRTP.PA).
Rumours of Ramsay-Levi's appointment have been circulating since Chloe's creative director Clare Waight Keller announced her departure at the end of January.
