Canada Goose appoints Haider Ackermann as its first-ever Creative Director


Recommended Posts



Canada Goose, the renowned outerwear brand, has welcomed its first-ever Creative Director. The individual stepping into this pivotal role is none other than Haider Ackermann, a luminary in the fashion industry, celebrated for his talent in defining modern design.


Ackermann, a Colombian-born French designer, will be based in Paris. His primary responsibility will be to shape the future of Canada Goose product and elevate the brand’s creative aesthetic. Working alongside Chairman & CEO, Dani Reiss, Ackermann is expected to guide the company into its next era.


Haider Ackermann's journey in the fashion industry began at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp and continued with an internship with John Galliano. He launched his own label in 2001 and gained recognition for his women’s wear collection. Ackermann’s work caught the attention of fashion giants like Dior and Chanel, with Karl Lagerfeld even naming him as his ideal successor. He introduced a full menswear line in 2013 and served as the creative director of Berluti from 2016 to 2018.  In 2010, Karl Lagerfeld described him as his ideal successor at Chanel, and some commentators called him a "new Yves Saint-Laurent".


The appointment is marked by the launch of an exclusive style in support of Polar Bears International (PBI), a testament to their shared belief that every human has an inherent responsibility to protect our planet. This launch campaign celebrates film icon and one of today’s most inspiring activists, Jane Fonda.




The limited-edition sweatshirt, called the PBI Hoodie, is made of organic cotton. All proceeds from the sale of the sweatshirt will go to PBI to fund vital research, implement innovative conservation strategies, and educate communities about the importance of protecting the Arctic.


This appointment signifies a new chapter for Canada Goose, with Ackermann’s creative vision expected to bring a fresh perspective to the brand. His first seasonal capsule collection will debut in fall/winter 2024.
