Amis Garrigue just began working as the design director at Judith Leiber, with the mission to bring fashion, glamour and excitement back to the house. The 46-year-old company already has an amazing history and archive, but is ripe for a modern makeover. Garrigue is helping to incorporate some of the amazing looks of the label’s past with today’s trends. The current collection is aptly called “Rebirth,” and will be debuted during the autumn/winter ’10-’11 collections in February.
