It's arguably one of the most coveted positions in fashion and ever since Alexander Wang announced his departure from Balenciaga earlier this year, we've been waiting for a replacement to be named.
Well, that wait is over as this morning news broke that Demna Gvasalia has taken up the mantle at the French fashion house.
Currently lead designer for brand Vetements, he will present his first show in March 2016, showcasing Autumn/Winter.
François-Henri Pinault, president and CEO of Kering said: "I am delighted to welcome Demna Gvasalia, a powerful emerging force in today's creative world, as artistic director of Balenciaga.
Demna Gvasalia embodies a unique approach to the profession, marked by a sociological observation of the wardrobe's essentials and the way he remains humble and rigorous in his creative work. I am convinced that he will lead Balenciaga to a successful future."
So what do you think- is he a fitting replacement for Wang? Let us know!
