French fashion house Chloé is set to join the fashion industry’s designer reshuffle after reports broke today that its current creative director Clare Waight Keller will not renew her contract at the end of March 2017. Natacha Ramsay-Levi, second in command to Nicolas Ghesquière at Louis Vuitton, is tipped to be positioned at the helm of the brand, which is one of the Richemont Group’s biggest performing labels for sales.
