Natacha Ramsay-Levi has officially joined Chloé as the fashion house's new creative director after four years at Louis Vuitton where she was design director and Nicolas Ghesquière's second-in-command. Her appointment comes a week after previous Chloé creative director Claire Waight Keller presented her last collection for the house at Paris Fashion Week.

"I am very proud to join a house founded by a woman to dress women. I want to create fashion that enhances the personality of the woman who wears it, fashion that creates a character and an attitude, without ever imposing a 'look,'" Ramsay-Levi said in a statement.

The French designer started her fashion career at Balenciaga in 2002, where she worked as an intern before she became then-creative director Ghesquière's top design deputy. When he left Balenciaga in 2012, Ramsay-Levi had gone on to work with other brands including Hermès and Acne Studios before reuniting with Ghesquière at Louis Vuitton.

According to WWD, Ghesquière has been supportive of Ramsay-Levi's transition to Chloé. After the end of his Autumn Winter 2017 runway show, he posted a photo of the two of them together with a touching caption onto Instagram.

Ramsay-Levi's first collection for Chloé will for the spring 2018 season at Paris Fashion Week in September.
