Biography

Since taking the creative helm at Chloé, Natacha Ramsay-Levi has established a strong silhouette to empower women of all kinds. A a longtime deputy of Louis Vuitton creative director Nicolas Ghesquière, she joined Chloé in 2017.

A Parisian native, Ramsay-Levi grew up on the Left Bank. She read history at the Paris 8 University before going on to study at Studio Berçot in 2000. She then joined Balenciaga as an intern two years later, where she worked her way up to design director. 

The protégée of Nicolas Ghesquière, Ramsay-Levi worked as Ghesquière’s right-hand at Balenciaga for more than a decade, where he was at the creative helm for 15 years. When Ghesquière joined Louis Vuitton, Ramsay-Levi followed, taking up the role of design director.

In March 2017, Richemont-owned Chloé announced Ramsay-Levi would succeed Clare Waight Keller , whose exit from the French house was announced three months prior. Ramsay-Levi showed her first collection —  Spring /Summer 2018 — that September in what BoF editor-at-large Tim Blanks hailed as a “spectacular debut” that “gave the sweetness of Chloé a slightly eerie edge.”

The designer has a son and stepdaughter with Purple magazine founder and editor Olivier Zahm
