Fashion's farewells - and new faces!

08 October 2008


It's all change in the fashion industry, following head designer Alessandra Facchinetti's departure from Valentino. Sergio Rossi have announced the arrival of Francesco Russo as their new creative director, who after stints at Miu Miu, Costume National and eight years under the watchful eye of Stefano Pilati at Yves Saint Laurent has us itching for a glimpse of his debut collection for  A/W  2009.  Also hitting the rumour mill is the the possibility of ex-Halston designer, Marco Zanini - ousted out after apparently failing to rejuvenate the brand - moving in to re-launch Rochas ready-to-wear in March 2009. Will he or won't he? Watch this space!
