In 2013 and 2014, so many fashion houses switched designers that it was difficult for even us to keep track — and it's our job. When Marc Jacobs announced at his spring 2014 show last October that he would be leaving Louis Vuitton after 10 years at the creative lead, it seemed to set off a chain reaction of designer switcheroos that has continued up until last week when Chris Benz was announced as creative director at Bill Blass. If these moves have left you a bit puzzled about which designer is where, don't fret: We've put together a handy infographic that will hopefully help you keep it all straight. That is, until another designer announces his or her departure, like, tomorrow.
