Alexander Wang: Balenciaga's New Creative Director!

Good Monday Morning Fab Girls! I can't think of a better way to wake up this morning that could make me this excited! (well there might be one other way but let's stick to this one shall we?!)

The internet was abuzz with rumors recently that 28-year-old Alexander Wang would be taking over as Creative Director at Balenciaga after Nicolas Ghesquière's departure in November and the news has at last been confirmed!
“Balenciaga is an extraordinary fashion house with inexhaustible potential and it is endowed with a priceless heritage. Alexander Wang will use his creativity and his own research to reinterpret and immortalize the distinctive, modern and extremely innovative style imposed by Cristóbal Balenciaga, said François-Henri Pinault, Chairman and CEO of PPR. (also known as Mr. Salma Hayek)
The CFDA winner, who is known for his popular urban designs, is certainly going to bring a different perspective to the fashion house.  I can't wait to see what the joint venture will bring in upcoming seasons!
"I am deeply honored to embark on this new role for a brand and house that I have such great admiration and respect for", said Alexander Wang.
Fans of Wang's fashion house need not fret. He will continue to create his youthful designs, just from a much swankier office in Paris!
