After 10 years as creative director at Céline, Phoebe Philo has announced that she will be leaving her position at the acclaimed fashion house. Before making her mark at the label, Philo caught the eye of the industry at Chloé in the early 2000s and in 2008 she arrived at Céline turning the once mid-level brand into a fashion authority that ushered in an era of minimalist designs, known for her emphasis on tailoring, menswear-inspired staples and dramatic silhouettes.

Now, with the news of her departure the fashion industry can only anticipate or hope that the multi-talented designer will add her touch to another label. But market sources are saying that Philo has no future plans to move immediately to another house and may simply take a break from fashion. Rumors have been circulating that she may move to Burberry but only the future will reveal what is in store for the designer.
