After the death of the great Karl Lagerfeld, questions immediately began to appear about who would be the successor to the designer.
It turned out that Virginie Vill, who was Lagerfeld's assistant, will soon become the creative director. She walked hand in hand with the master for more than 30 years, and in the fashion world she was called the gray cardinal.
If before Virginia was engaged in technical issues, now she will fully manage all the lines of Chanel.
Recently, she constantly accompanied the couturier, and at the last show went to the bow instead of Lagerfeld.
Not much is known about the successor. Since childhood, she was passionate about design, cutting and sewing. And in 20 years, she created her own brand of clothing. In the late 80s, Virginie came to Chanel, where her talent was almost immediately appreciated, and soon she became an assistant to a great designer.
