Faye McLeod hasjoined Louis Vuitton as creative director of visual merchandising.

Despite a 23 percent decline in profits for the first half of the year, LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton expects to gain market share in 2009 because of product launches, expansion in new markets and cost containments. The Louis Vuitton label has been a relative bright spot. The French luxury group reported fashion and leather goods sales grew 8 percent to 2.98 billion euros, or $4 billion, due partially to the strength of Louis Vuitton bags and luggage.
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)
