Haider Ackermann's Backer Would "Support Him" If He Designed for Another Label

Haider Ackermann's Backer Would "Support Him" If He Designed for Another Label

>> Haider Ackermann admitted Sunday that there are houses he'd like to design for — his name, coincidentally, has been thrown into the ring for the Dior job — and the backer for his signature label, Anne Chapelle, confirmed that he's contractually free to work elsewhere: “I would be very proud and would continue to support him and be a mentor in the mind.” But, she notes, when Ackermann was asked to take over at Martin Margiela after the designer left, “I said to Haider: ‘Do you understand the Margiela woman? If the answer is positive, I have no objection. But can you cope with a big house? Here it is very protective. If you scream, I am there to support you.'” [WWD, IHT]
