It's been a year of significant upheavals amongst some of the world's top fashion houses and the latest happened today as Peter Dundas has left Roberto Cavalli, Business of Fashion has confirmed.
The shock exit comes after Dundas spent just over 18 months in the role, having been appointed to the brand in March of 2015. He had originally held the post from 2002-2005, before leaving to be creative director at Emanuel Ungaro, followed by Pucci.
The designer said in a statement, "I want to thank Roberto Cavalli and the Group for this valuable experience and I wish them the best in their future endeavours. I am especially grateful to the ateliers and the teams who participared in this adventure."
The house is yet to name a successor to the position and Dundas has not yet revealed where he is going. With a slew of celebrity best friends who have religiously worn his creations over the years, no matter the house, could it be that the designer is going to branch out and start his own label?
