Today we are learning that Peter Copping will be vacating his post as creative director of Oscar de la Renta.
“After almost two years at Oscar de la Renta, personal circumstances require me to return to Europe. I have loved my time in New York where I hope to return at some point in the future,” Copping said in a statement.
“We have always been in the business of creating beautiful clothes,” said ODLR chief executive officer Alex Bolen. “And two of our greatest assets are our design studio and atelier. Our team will continue to work on next season’s collection with a keen focus on the level of sophistication and craftsmanship that are the hallmarks of the house. We wish Peter well in his future endeavours.”
Copping was appointed to the role less than two years ago. Rumored successors include former Oscar de la Renta design team members Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia.
