Lydia Maurer takes on the artistic direction of Paco Rabanne’s women’s ready-to-wear line.
The German born designer replaces Manish Arora who left in May 2012 after two seasons.
Maurer has previously worked at Yves Saint Laurent and Givenchy and directed the Paco Rabanne Studio since November 2011.
Speaking of her appointment she said: ‘It is a great honor to be taking on the artistic direction of such an enblematic house at the hear of Parisian creation. Monsieur Rabanne created his clothing as a means of expressing the singularity of each woman. He invented a timeless,unique and sensual style inspired by art and architecture. This is the ongoing creative spirit that I wish to convey in my work for the house.’
The 29-year-old will present her her S/S 13 collection during Paris Fashion Week this October.
