PARIS — Lawyers for designer Nicolas Ghesquière have until Oct. 15 to prepare their arguments fending off a case brought against him by Balenciaga, his former employer, for remarks by the designer that the fashion house deemed harmful.
Court documents obtained by WWD show Balenciaga is seeking damages of 7 million euros, or $9.2 million at current exchange, along with publication of the judgment in a variety of French fashion and business publications.
