It’s a season of transformation for Belgian fashion house Ann Demeulemeester. After experiencing recent turbulence, the brand is now back on steady ground with the appointment of Stefano Gallici as the new creative director.
A Swift Change of Hands
The departure of Ludovic de Saint Sernin, who served as creative director for only one season, spurred quick action from Ann Demeulemeester. Wasting no time, the brand swiftly set the wheels in motion for a new era of creative leadership, introducing Stefano Gallici as the incoming creative director.
A Wealth of Experience
Gallici brings a wealth of industry experience to his new role. A graduate from Università Iuav di Venezia in Venice, he formerly worked as an assistant designer at the highly-regarded fashion house Haider Ackermann. In 2019, he made a move to the Antonioli Group, which would later acquire Ann Demeulemeester. Gallici was reportedly instrumental behind the scenes at Ann Demeulemeester in this capacity, making him a fitting choice to take up the creative reigns of the Belgian fashion house.
Anticipating a Fresh Chapter
All eyes are now on Stefano Gallici as he readies to present his first collection for Ann Demeulemeester at Paris Fashion Week on September 30th. The industry is eager to witness the fresh creative vision Gallici will bring to the storied brand, marking the beginning of a new chapter for the Belgian fashion house.
