Guillaume Henry / GETTY

The ex-artistic director of Carven has been appointed to Nina Ricci

There's never a quiet day in the fashion industry. Hot on the heels of the big news about John Galliano yesterday, another move has been confirmed.

Guillaume Henry who was the artistic director of Carven, has left the label and will take up a new role as creative director of Nina Ricci following Peter Copping's departure.

Henry, is widely credited with turning round the fortune of French house Carven, which is now a go-to label for those looking for more contemporary luxury designs.

Ralph Toledano, president of Puig Fashion Division, the company which owns Nina Ricci commented on the appointment:

"We are welcoming Guillaume Henry at Nina Ricci with tremendous delight and great ambitions for the brand. In addition to being an outstanding talent, Guillaume has the characteristics of a major designer: artistic vision, intuition, intelligence, charisma, curiosity, and a remarkable ability to attract and gather the very best."

Henry's debut collection for Nina Ricci will be the autumn/winter 2015 presentation which will take place in February next year.

Copping is rumored to be in talks to take on a new position at Oscar de la Renta alongside the 82 year-old designer.
