Massimiliano Giornetti is stepping down as creative director of luxury Italian label, Salvatore Ferragamo, after 16 years with Ferragamo and 6 years as the brand’s creative director.

The designer started at the Italian label in 2000, when he took over the design and development of the brand’s menswear before being appointed overall creative director of the house in 2011.

Giornetti’s announcement continues a recent thread of high profile designer exits like Alber Elbaz leaving Lanvin last October, Raf Simons’s departure from Dior and rumours that Hedi Slimane is leaving Saint Laurent.

Giornetti is expected to be replaced by the brand’s in-house design team.
