^ I have to agree on his last collection but otherwise he's doing a great job at Givenchy, in my opinion. His Haute Couture is so lovely!

Betsey Johnson at Chanel would be like Mariah Carey singing hardrock songs.
I'd love to see Bruno Pieters at Chanel actually..but that's not very realistic

I was looking at the latest Matthew Williamson collection and I thought to myself, "Wow, he would be great for Emilio Pucci" and then I remember he's already there but he's not doing such a good job at it IMO.

I've been thinking of a good person for Valentino and I can't seem to come up with one. He seems to be getting old, or maybe he just looks old. But I think someone would maybe need to work under his wings for a few years and then take over the house.

Anyway, being relatively new to fashion, I doubt my suggestions make much sense but I'd probably make the following changes:

1) Louis Vuitton / Marc Jacobs => Louis Vuitton / Tom Ford
2) Emilio Pucci / Matthew Williamson => Emilio Pucci / Christian Lacroix

To explain, I'd get rid of Marc Jacobs because frankly, his latest collections are somewhat lacklustre - minimalism in fashion is simple yet artistic and wearable, but Marc Jacobs' minimalism for Louis Vuitton is plain - too plain. Tom Ford established Gucci as sleek and sexy and I'm sure he can do something for Louis Vuitton as well - it doesn't have to be porno-sexy, but he should be able to inject some sleekness into the simplicity that Marc Jacobs has set up at Louis Vuitton.

As for the change of Emilio Pucci's head of design to Christian Lacroix, it's mainly based on the fact that somehow Matthew Williamson doesn't seem to have much individual flair and style as Christian Lacroix. I guess I sound very pompous (indeed, I am not very familiar with Williamson's works and have only seen a handful) but I believe Lacroix can make Pucci elegant and classy (and classic, as well).
Absolutely right for the change of MW, it seem he is ruining Emilio Pucci image rather retain it. Giles Deacon could be another candidate!

I don't get it because Matthew Williamson presented a wonderful collection for his own line and crap for Pucci.

I'd love to see a designer at Versace

I think Betsey would be AWFUL for Chanel. And I'm not even a huge Karl Lagerfield fan, but I don't think what he's doing for Chanel is bad. I don't don't think she could do any better than Karl or at the least, i don't think she could even be on his level. It doesn't fit her aesthetic at all. And Chanel has a pretty broad customer base already so there's really no need to do more.

Anyone new at Chanel would be good. Karl is pissing me off, he's getting boring.

I'd change the designers in these houses:

Chanel - Kaiser is not doing anything good for Coco anymore. Chanel looks bad.
Dior - Galliano lost it a long time ago. Dior is the equivalent of trashy now.
Burberry - Bailey is ok, but there have been more and more negative pieces and collections. I think a new fresh designer would be better, Burberry is a little bit stuck in a rut.
Emilio Pucci - It is Williamson who is designing for them, right? He has no talent, and Pucci used to be interesting.
Gucci - Gucci has been getting a lot worse.
