Alessandro Michele is best known for his time at Gucci. When the designer, who ushered in a new era with his unique maximalism, was appointed to Gucci in January 2015, he literally gave life to the brand with his vision. Gucci, whose sales increased during his time, became one of the most demanded brands. The next stop of the Italian designer, who left Gucci in November 2022, has been eagerly awaited until now.

Michele, who will take office on April 2, will present her first Valentino collection at Paris Fashion Week in September.
