On this day in fashion history

In 2009, it was announced that artists agency Art + Commerce had signed designer-turned-photographer Hedi Slimane to its books.

Things had been all quiet on the fashion front for Slimane since he left Dior Homme the previous year and, despite persistent rumours that he was in talks with various labels, nothing had materialised. When asked about his future plans in July of the same year, he maintained: “It’s a secret.”

Three years later he was appointed creative director of Yves Saint Laurent, replacing Stefano Pilati.
