Peter Dundas has left his creative director role at Roberto Cavalli after just 19 months. His last collection for the label was for the Spring Summer 2017 season that showed at Milan Fashion Week in September.

"On behalf of Roberto Cavalli and our shareholders, we thank Peter Dundas for his contribution to the brand, and we wish him well for his future," said Gian Giancomo Ferraris, CEO at Roberto Cavalli SpA, in a brief statement. "As Roberto Cavalli goes through a period of transformation, the design team will carry on and the appointment of a new creative director will be made in due course."

Dundas first joined the label as creative director in March last year. This marks the second time that he has left Roberto Cavalli after first serving as its chief designer from 2002 to 2005. He then took up the role of creative director at Emanuel Ungaro in 2005 before leaving for the same role at Emilio Pucci in 2008.

"I want to thank Roberto Cavalli and the group for this valuable experience and wish them success in their future endeavours," Dundas said. His successor has yet to be named.
