In a recent interview with the Financial Times, Colombian-born and Paris-based designer Haider Ackermann drops two very Dior-sounding hints. The first, in relation to potentially wanting to work for the house, he says:
“There are two houses I would be interested in. Two where I feel there is shared sensibility, and I could bring something else of myself to the house, which isn’t expressed in my own line.”
Ooh la la! Could Chanel be the other? The second, in relation to the supposed performance pressure designers are under (ahem, John Galliano), he says:
“Look, let’s be honest. You can’t just blame the system. We are all responsible for our own lives. I find it difficult when people complain about the pressure. This is fashion, it’s not surgery. It’s a job; a job with a lot of dreams woven in.”
