It's almost the beginning of Fashion Month, which means we're about to hear a lot of juicy rumors about the designers who are swapping ranks at fashion's biggest houses. The first brand people will be discussing in the front rows? Emilio Pucci.

WWD is reporting that fall 2015 will be Creative Director Peter Dundas's last collection for the house, and that Marco Zanini is first in line to replace him. Zanini, as you may recall, left Schiaparelli in November after only a year with the resurrected fashion house. Before that, he designed ready-to-wear for Rochas.

A rep for Pucci did not immediately respond to our request for comment.

According to WWD, MSGM's Massimo Giorgetti is also rumored to be in the running for Dundas's job. Dundas has been with LVMH-owned Pucci since 2008, when he replaced Matthew Williamson. He's made a name for himself there by infusing the house's signature colorful prints into glamorous, hippie-tinged dresses with lots of sex appeal, which have become mainstays on the red carpet.
