>> Earlier this year, it was thought that Gareth Pugh engaged in talks about becoming Alexander McQueen's successor, but the position ultimately went to McQueen's head of womenswear, Sarah Burton.
Now, there's talk that Pugh may land elsewhere. There was a rumor last Fall that Thierry Mugler was looking to fully relaunch his womenswear label for Spring 2011 under current Mugler artistic director Rosemary Rodriguez. Now, however, WWD reports that Mugler is looking to change the direction of the label and has approached several potential candidates. One such candidate? None other than Gareth Pugh.
