Big Changes at Gucci
They were the super-stylish power couple who ran one of the world’s most iconic fashion houses so the industry was in shock earlier this week when it was announced that Frida Giannini and her partner Patrizio di Marco – Creative Director and CEO respectively – were leaving Gucci. Spectacularly ousted from their roles amid falling sales, the real life couple will both leave in 2015. Giannini, who has been sole designer since 2006, will leave at the end of February after showing her A/W 15 collcetion while her hubbie has been appointed CEO of the Italian label Kering. They will be sorely missed!
