Clare Waight Keller is taking over.

Givenchy has found its new artistic director.

Clare Waight Keller will be taking the helm, Givenchy confirmed on its official Instagram account on Thursday. She'll take on all creative responsibilities, including women’s and men’s ready-to-wear and accessories collections, as well as Haute Couture, effective May 2.

“Hubert de Givenchy's confident style has always been an inspiration and I am very grateful for the the opportunity to be a part of this legendary House's history,” said Waight Keller in a statement.

Prior to joining Givenchy, Keller spent six years at Chloe. She presented her last collection for Chloe at Paris Fashion Week earlier this month. Her fall 2017 collection was hailed by THR senior fashion editor Booth Moore as “a shining example of how successful she was at revitalizing the French fashion house.”

Waight Keller succeeds Riccardo Tisci, who announced his departure from Givenchy last month after spending 12 years with the LVMH-owned luxury label. The separation was said to be “mutual and amicable.”

Waight Keller will be the first woman to take the creative lead at Givenchy. Hubert de Givenchy, who founded the house in 1952, John Galliano, Alexander McQueen, Julien Macdonald and Tisci all took turns at the helm.
