McQueen Announces New Director

In the last hour the house of McQueen has announced that Sarah Burton, a longtime colleague of the late designer, to be the new creative director of the brand. In a statement released in London today she said she would remain "true to his legacy" by creating "beautiful" collections which are "modernly crafted".

This comes after a recent shake up of creative designers at major fashion houses. This includes Jean Paul Gaultier leaving luxury label Hermes, and being replaced by Lacoste's Christophe Lemaire. Gaultier will not be completely severing ties from Hermes, and will be over seeing the S/S 2011 collection, which will be previewed in October. Lemaire will take the reins from A/W 2011.
