Having wrapped its New York Fashion Week show just a few weeks ago, Carolina Herrera is now readying for some big management changes. A rep for the label has confirmed that Caroline Brown has resigned from her position as president of the company.

Before arriving at the Puig-owned label four years ago, Brown served as CEO of Akris U.S. and as Giorgio Armani's senior VP of marketing and communications for the States. No word yet on where she'll be going when she departs from the brand at the end of the year. In the meantime, the search is on for her successor.

Most recently, Brown put her effort into bulking up Carolina Herrera's technology arm, launching an app called Herrera Style in August to cater to the brand's biggest customers. According to Brown, the app was about stimulating incremental rather than exponential sales growth, suggesting that it was part of a longer term digital vision for the company. 

We're curious to see what more Brown will be able to accomplish in her remaining months at the helm of Herrera — and how the next president will pick up her work.
