Alexander Wang was appointed the creative director for Balenciaga in 2012. After 3 years, sanitary he is parting ways with the French fashion house. According to sources, buy Balenciaga and parent Kering have decided not to renew Wang’s contract. That being said, this spring 2016 Balenciaga’s show during Paris Fashion Week, September 29 to October 07, will be Wang’s grand finale.

Wang has been a big contributor to helping Balenciaga expand. He has dressed well known women such as Carey Mulligan, Julianne Moore, Lady Gaga, and Sienna Miller. There is no word why they decided to part ways, but there’s rumors that Wang is looking for an investor for his privately held Alexander Wang brand. He is planning to open his first flagship store in London. There’s no doubt this talented designer is going to continue being a big name in the fashion world.

Kering has not officially chosen a replacement, however, a source says the corporation is open to hiring an unknown designer. We’re all excited to see what’s next for these two brands.
