Is Haider Ackermann Ready to Take on Designing for a Major House? Some Think He's "Unprepared"

Is Haider Ackermann Ready to Take on Designing for a Major House? Some Think He's "Unprepared"

>> In recent years, Haider Ackermann's name has been thrown around as a potential successor for Martin Margiela, Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel, John Galliano at Christian Dior, and Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy. But is he prepared for a leap to a major design house? A couple of years ago when he was offered the Margiela job, Ackermann's backer seemed to question just that — she says she asked him, "But can you cope with a big house? Here it is very protective. If you scream, I am there to support you." He didn't take the Margiela position. And of Ackermann attending Chanel's show yesterday, Cathy Horyn writes, "[His] arrival drew notice. Designers are often invited to shows, but Mr. Ackermann is being mentioned as a possible choice for Dior. This suggestion completely flies in the face of the realities of big brands, and instead of dealing with the issue of pressures within these companies, it serves to throw another unprepared designer into that situation."
