The fashion shakeups continue! After almost two years with the brand, Peter Copping has exited his post as the Creative Director at Oscar de la Renta:

Here’s Copping’s statement on his departure: “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 assumed the coveted and momentous role after Oscar de la Renta’s death in October of 2014. Based on a statement from Alex Bolen who is ODLR’s CEO, there doesn’t seem to be any bad blood between the company and the former Creative Director. “We have always been in the business of creating clothes and two of our greatest assets are our design studio and atelier,” said Bolen. He continued, “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 our house. We wish Peter well in his future endeavors.”


It looks as if they aren’t in a rush to appoint Copping’s successor. So there’s no telling who will fill the position next and whether or not Copping will move to another brand. Stay tuned.


Thoughts on the news? Who would you like to see at ODLR next?
