Last week, news of who’s going to replace Christophe Lemaire as the artistic director of women’s ready-to-wear at Hermes remained unknown, but it has just been reported that former Céline and The Row designer Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski will be taking up his post.

A change in strategy has be noted in the french house of Hermes as they appoint Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski, a behind the scenes designer without a eponymous label to be the artistic director of women’s ready-to-wear.

The fresh faced 36 year-old french designer seems to be just the right person for the job as Axel Dumas, chief executive officer of Hermès, said: “Her talent and her creative track record will be great assets in the continued development of women’s ready-to-wear. She will devote herself full-time to our house.” Despite her low public profile,  Vanhee-Cybulski has a list of top qualified credentials. Following her graduation from the  Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts in Belgium, she worked at Maison Martin Margiela in Paris before joining Phoebe Philo as a senior designer at Céline and more recently she acted as the women’s designer of The Row until March.

Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski will make her catwalk debut with the Fall 2015 collection in March of next year.
