Haider Ackermann Rumored to Be Taking Over Maison Martin Margiela

>> Haider Ackermann has had a fan in Tilda Swinton for years — she has chosen him numerous times for the red carpet — but his Fall 2009 collection earned him a wider fan base. Style.com raved: "Has Haider Ackermann finally arrived? The beautiful collection he showed today certainly suggests he deserves every bit of the newfound attention."  Over the weekend, T echoed the sentiment that Fall 2009 helped the designer make the jump "from newcomer to trendsetter."

His business grew by 43 percent last year, and rumors "have been swirling for months," according to T, that Ackermann would be taking over Maison Martin Margiela:

When queried about the speculation, he sidesteps: 'When you meet the person you have admired for so many years, how can you possibly replace him? Sometimes it's better never to meet your heroes.'

He is open to designing for another house »

He is open to other possibilities, as long as he can continue to design under his own name.  And he likes the idea of working for a house with a different sensibility than his own: "You have your own repertoire, to which you are attached, but sometimes you have something else to say, and the code of another house might help you do that. I would love to share another aesthetic, but it would have to be the right house. And the right timing."
