Shake-ups continue to rock the fashion world


The world of high fashion continues to be in flux as top designers exit luxury brands.Calvin Klein said this week that Francisco Costa and Italo Zucchelli will exit, sparking rumors that Raf Simons — who left Christian Dior last year — could take over as creative director.

WWD reported that Simons is thought to be under a noncompete clause with LVMH until this summer.

Earlier this month, fashion darling Hedi Slimane quit Saint Laurent weeks after Massimiliano Giornetti parted ways with Salvatore Ferragamo. Also this year, lead designers have bolted from Ermenegildo Zegna, Berluti and Brioni. Alber Elbaz shockingly left Lanvin last fall.
