The 30-year-old was unmasked as the creator of Margiela's couture line earlier this year
At the last Margiela show, Vogue's Suzy Menkes unmasked the 30-year-old designer as the man behind the secretive house's couture collection. But Galliano has taken over all Margiela lines – and he's brought along members of his old team from Dior and his eponymous label with him. So where does that leave Blazy?
The hire makes perfect sense: Blazy has years of experience, having previously interned at John Galliano and Balenciaga before serving as senior designer at Raf Simons.
Céline, like Margiela, has a policy of not talking about its new hire – but don't be surprised if you see Blazy in Philo's design studio soon.
