Fashion designer Guillaume Henry is leaving Nina Ricci after three years as the brand's Creative Director.
The French house confirmed the news with a statement that read: "After three years of a mutually gratifying creative collaboration, Nina Ricci and Guillaume Henry have together decided that the designer will depart the House after the presentation of the Fall-Winter 2018-19 collection." The company also confirmed that, pending Henry's replacement, its in-house studio will take charge of designing the upcoming ready-to-wear collections.
French creative Henry took over the creative helm of Nina Ricci from British designer Peter Copping in 2015. Prior to taking on the role, he had spent several years leading the way at Carven, where he was credited with reinvigorating the heritage brand.
Henry is not the only creative turning a career page right now -- the news of his departure news signals the latest big professional shake-up on the fashion circuit. So far this year, British designer Christopher Bailey has said goodbye to Burberry, where he has been replaced with former Givenchy creative Riccardo Tisci. Meanwhile, February saw Caroline Herrera announce that she was stepping down as chief designer of her eponymous brand, while Bruno Frisoni also parted ways with Roger Vivier after 16 years with the label.
