MacGibbon is a highly experienced talent, who spent five years at Chloe from 2001 to 2006 working closely with Phoebe Philo, the highly acclaimed British designer who turned Chloe into one of the half dozen hottest labels in fashion.
Since 2006, MacGibbon has been a consultant to Chloe as creative director for the development and spring 2008 launch of Chloe Parfum. Prior to joining Chloe, she was the assistant director to Valentino Garavani in Rome.
MacGibbon is a graduate of Central St. Martins, the London design school.
In 2008 Chloe appointed Hannah MacGibbon to be its new creative director, nine days after her predecessor staged his last collection for the house.
Macgibbon succeeds Paulo Melim Andersson, a Swede who held the position for three season since October 2008.
While at Chloe, MacGibbon was credited by insiders with bringing a touch of chic to the romantic feminine street style of her then boss Philo.
