Last year, we reported that Alber Elbaz¬†left¬†Lanvin. Then it was much buzz that¬†Elbaz may succeed Raf Simons at Dior, but eventually that buzz died down. As far as Dior, we last reported that “Sarah Burton¬†is reportedly in talks to take over the creative reins at Dior.

The fashion industry has been buzzing about the future of Alber Elbaz ever since he departed the high end French fashion house. The fashion industry wants Elbaz to start his own label.

It was always his own vision. At Lanvin, what he did was Alber Elbaz for Lanvin. At Guy Laroche, it was Alber Elbaz for Guy Laroche. Now he should just do Alber Elbaz,” Ralph Toledano, the president of the F√©d√©ration Fran√ßaise de la Couture, du Pr√™t-√†-Porter des Couturiers et des Cr√©ateurs de Mode, told the New York Times.

Kim Hastreiter, the editor of Paper magazine and an old friend of Elbaz‚Äôs, said, ‚ÄúMaybe he‚Äôd want his own house.‚ÄĚ

Marigay McKee, a luxury consultant and former president of Saks Fifth Avenue, suggested the same thing.

Renzo Rosso, the president of Only the Brave, which controls Diesel, Maison Margiela, Marni and Viktor & Rolf, told the journalist Colin McDowell that he had met with Mr. Elbaz. And, Mr. McDowell¬†wrote¬†for Business of Fashion, ‚Äúwhen Elbaz said, ‚ÄėI don‚Äôt have a company,‚Äô Renzo replied: ‚ÄėMake one!‚Äô ‚ÄĚ
