Five years later, she left for Balenciaga and worked under the direction of Nicolas Ghesquière before being chosen by Raf Simons to join his team at Dior as Head Designer of Women’s Haute Couture and the Ready-to-Wear collections. After Simons’ left Dior, she took the role of Co-Creative Director at Dior and led the development of five collections in this role.
Luke Meier was born in Canada and later moved to the US to pursue his studies in finance and international business at Georgetown University in Washington, DC. He continued his studies in business policy at the Oxford University in the UK, before moving to New York City where he attended FIT. He met James Jebbia, and subsequently worked for eight years as Head Designer of Supreme in New York, where he also co-founded the menswear line OAMC.
