Usually, it’s editorial shakeups that get us all confused and inspire us to create befuddling charts and guides to recap and (at least attempt to) make sense of movement within the fashion industry. Lately, however, it seems that most of the movement is taking place at big fashion houses. Whether it’s the economy or designers getting burnt-out, it seems like a top level position opens (or gets filled) every week. From Galliano's exit from Dior to Marios Schwab's from Halston (which happened so recently we didn't have a chance to include it), here’s our little visual guide to the recent ins and outs at major fashion houses.
London-based designer Graeme Black is the new creative director of the Gianfranco Ferre fashion house, according to Grazia UK fashion director Paula Reed, who tweeted the news earlier today. Black will replace Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi, who were let go in April of this year. Based in London, the Scottish designer spent several years in Milan, climbing the ranks at Giorgio Armani until he was appointed head of womenswear for Salvatore Ferragamo in 2003.
