Clare Waight Keller, artistic director, Givenchy

If we were to pick “the” dress of 2018, it would probably be the clean and crisp, open bateau-necked, three-quarter-length-sleeved dress American actress Meghan Markle wore for her May wedding to Prince Harry.

The royal wedding dress was designed by Clare Waight Keller, artistic director of French fashion house Givenchy. Birmingham-born Waight Keller has been an influential name within the fashion industry for several years – behind the scenes at Gucci she headed womenswear under Tom Ford, and most prominently as artistic director at Richemont-owned Chloé since 2011, where she breathed new life into the brand’s signature Parisian take on 1970s boho.

In 2017, she stepped into Riccardo Tisci’s shoes as the artistic director of Givenchy – the first woman to hold the position at the company – and has slowly been steering the brand into a new direction.
