Speculations have been rife after Alexander Wang showcased his last collection for Balenciaga's at the Paris Fashion Week on who would take over the reins. Ending all gossips, the new appointment has been made and Wang’s post is to be filled by Demna Gvasalia. If you are also asking who Gvasalia, don’t fetter you are not the only one asking the question. Though he is a reputed designer in his own rights, he isn’t famous in mainstream fashion world yet.

Demna Gvasalia is the founder and chief designer of an up-and-coming French label, Vêtements. The 34-year-old has already made his mark with his unorthodox sartorial view point because of which he is regularly endorsed by the likes of Kanye West and Jared Leto. Let’s find out a little bit more about Gvasalia.

The Georgian-born designer got his training at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp. Before being recruited by Balenciaga, Gvasalia has also done a few high profile gigs. He was Maison Martin Margiela’s senior designer for three years, after which he worked with Louis Vuitton in 2012. 

In 2014, Gvasalia along with several anonymous designers launched Vêtements, meaning clothes. The designers with Gvasalia remained unnamed as they didn’t want to violate contract signed with other fashion brands. In a short period of time, Vêtements became a well-known off-the-grid brand in Paris which had refreshing simple silhouettes. Gvasalia continues as the brand’s head designer.

Gvasalia has previously embraced the unconventional runway, such as was seen in Vêtements’ collections. The brand has showcased four collections in out-of-the-box locations. In this year’s fall collection, Vêtements showed its collection in the basement of Le Depot gay club, a famous spot in Paris. Recently, Gvasalia also turned a Chinese restaurant into a high fashion stage.

Though Gvasalia is officially on board of Balenciaga, he isn’t letting go of the Vêtements rein. As per reports, in 2016 March, for the fall season, the designer will showcase his first collection for Balenciaga and will also display the creations for Vêtements.
