    News on FASHION WIRE DAILY is that SOPHIA KOKOSALAKI is to be the new designer of GIVENCHY FEMME as from A/W 05/06 .

    An in-house design team will cover the S/S 05 collection , now that the ' Welsh Versace ' , Julien Macdonald , has gone to pastures new .

    It's supposed to be a done deal .

    GOOD LUCK to her :lucky:

    I'll bet LENA :heart: will be pleased !!! :flower:

    wow, that's pretty cool, I'm really interested to see what she'll do at Givenchy :flower:
    Although I really wanted Martin Grant to become the new designer for Givenchy :cry: because I love how well tailored and lovely his designs are :heart:

    oh well, congrats to her and good luck all the same :blush:

    Has the potential to be very exciting--did anyone else like what she did with the costumes at the Athens games?

    I think Ozwald and Sophia are a good combination to revive Givenchy.

    I just hope this doesn't become a tremendous task and distract her from own collection. She's had some beautiful and successful collections thus far,just don't want that to be ruined. In any case,I am confident that she'll be breathe of fresh air.

    This is certainly interesting news!

    i love the frisson created by a team like that -- almost as exciting as the galliano/slimane/de castellane union at dior. each expanding in different directions and intepreting the same spirit in different ways. let's just hope lvmh (if the rumor holds true) is as pleased with her vision for givenchy as they are with galliano's for dior. (and so much for choosing an unknown as one thought gucci group appointments were foreshadowing)

    thats great! I'm so excited that they picked a lesser known designer as well. I can't wait to see what she'll do for the house!
