The newest name on the growing list of departing designers is Massimiliano Giornetti, who announced his exit from Salvatore Ferragamo yesterday. WWD reports that the Autumn Winter collection shown at Milan Fashion Week in February was his last for the brand. 

The announcement ends a 16-year tenure. Massimiliano joined the company in 2000 and was promoted to creative director in 2011, overlooking both menswear and womenswear. Giornetti described his departure as a "natural evolution, after a long-lasting and profitable collaboration." 

While Salvatore Ferragamo waits for its next creative director, the brand will rely on its in-house design team for the time being. Giornetti's exit follows the leave of designers such as Raf Simons (Christian Dior), Stefano Pilati (Ermenegildo Zegna), Alber Elbaz (Lanvin) and Alexander Wang (Balenciaga).
