Virginie Viard Bows Out At Chanel

After 30 years, including the last five years as artistic director, Virginie Viard is exiting Chanel. The house confirmed her departure to Vogue Business on Wednesday. Viard was appointed artistic creative director in 2019 after Karl Lagerfeld passed away. The Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 2024/2025 collection will be presented as planned on 25 June at the Opéra Garnier.

“Chanel confirms the departure of Virginie Viard after a rich collaboration of five years as artistic director of fashion collections, during which she was able to renew the codes of the house while respecting the creative heritage of Chanel, and almost 30 years within the house,” the house said in a statement. “A new creative organisation will be announced in due course. Chanel would like to thank Virginie Viard for her remarkable contribution to Chanel’s fashion, creativity and vitality.”
