A series of personnel shifts in the fashion industry does not seem to stop. This time it became known that Derek Lam leaves the post of creative director of Tod's fashion house. He has held this position over the past 6 years.
Reasons for leaving have not yet been reported. The fashion designer himself currently refrains from commenting. It is not known who will now take his place.
Derek Lam came to the Italian House in 2006, just a year after receiving the CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund Award, which supports young and talented designers.
For fashion experts, the news of Lama’s dismissal came as a complete surprise. It would seem that nothing foreshadowed such a scenario. During his time at Tod's, Lam achieved considerable success, writes fashionunited.ru.
Some experts suggest that the designer decided to focus on working on his own brand Derek Lam, created back in 2002. Recently, this brand has been developing quite actively.
