Haider Ackermann Hints at Dior Possibility

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Fashion Designers, Rumors,

Haider AckermannHaider Ackermann has fuelled speculation he is interested in the vacant role at Christian Dior by revealing his desire to work at an established fashion house.

The designer - who has his own eponymous label - has previously been linked with the French fashion house, which has been searching for a new creative director for almost a year following the sacking of John Galliano and now says there are only two couture brands he would love to work for.

"There are two houses I would be interested in. 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,"

Haider has also previously been linked to the creative director role at Chanel, and says he doesn't understand people who complain about the pressure which he comes with taking over at an established fashion house: "Look, let's be honest. You can't just blame the system. We are all responsible for our own lives. I find it difficult when people complain about the pressure. This is fashion, it's not surgery. It's a job; a job with a lot of dreams woven in."
