Kering has announced that Seán McGirr has been appointed as creative director of luxury fashion brand, Alexander McQueen.

McGirr was previously head of ready-to-wear menswear and womenswear at JW Anderson. Prior to that, he was women’s designer at Dries Van Noten and also worked for four years at Uniqlo on the brand’s men’s collections. He started his career assisting at Burberry and Vogue Hommes Japan.

In his new position, he will succeed Sarah Burton who presented her final collection for the brand at Paris Fashion Week last month.

Gianfilippo Testa, chief executive of Alexander McQueen, said: “We are delighted to welcome Seán McGirr as creative director. With his experience, personality, and creative energy, he will bring a powerful creative language to Alexander McQueen while building on its unique heritage.”

François-Henri Pinault, chairman and chief executive of Kering, added: “Alexander McQueen is a House we are passionate about, and we are confident that Seán McGirr will be able to pursue its journey with a new creative impetus. We look forward to opening this new chapter in the history of this unique brand.”
