Haider Ackermann Hints at Dior Job

Haider Ackermann Hints At Move To Dior — Or Chanel

>> Because there wasn't enough speculation about the Dior job already, fashion news minders have honed in on a Haider Ackermann quote that suggests he wants to take over the reins at the storied French fashion house.

In an interview with the Financial Times, Ackermann revealed that he has his eye set on not just one creative director's chair, but two.

"There are two houses I would be interested in," Ackermann said. "Two where I feel there is shared sensibility, and I could bring something else of myself to the house, which isn't expressed in my own line."

Ackermann declined to tell FT which houses he was talking about, but did admit that his dream is to work on a couture collection. He's been rumored to be in the running for the Dior job since the house's last creative director, John Galliano, was <a href="http://www.fashionologie.com/Christian-Dior-Has-Fired-John-Galliano-14561966" target=_blank">fired last March</a>, and Karl Lagerfeld <a href="http://www.wwd.com/fashion-news/fashion-scoops/holiday-treats-cavalli-lets-it-rip-hsns-new-celebrity-project-3385190?page=6" onclick="trackOutboundLink('article:page', 'www.wwd.com', '22270022', 'http://www.wwd.com/fashion-news/fashion-scoops/holiday-treats-cavalli-lets-it-rip-hsns-new-celebrity-project-3385190?page=6')" target=_blank">told Numero</a> in 2010 that he wanted Ackermann to succeed him at Chanel.

Ackermann says no matter which job he does next, he's prepared for the pressure. "This is fashion, it's not surgery," he said. "It's a job; a job with a lot of dreams woven in."
