NEW YORK (AP) — All fashion shows are team efforts, but that was truer than usual at Oscar de la Renta's Spring 2017 runway show Monday at New York Fashion Week.
Designer Peter Copping left his post abruptly in July, citing only personal circumstances, after less than two years in the job. It was one of a slew of recent departures of top designers at major labels. Copping had been the designated successor of the legendary de la Renta, who died of cancer just as Copping came aboard in 2014.
NEW YORK (AP) — Less than two years after joining Oscar de la Renta and following in the footsteps of its late, legendary founding designer, Peter Copping is leaving his post as creative director to return to Europe.
Copping said he was leaving the luxury label for personal reasons. The development was just the latest in a turbulent year for top fashion houses, with turnover at Yves Saint Laurent, Dior, Balenciaga and Calvin Klein, among others.
