Frida Giannini has left Gucci one month earlier than expected and will not be taking part in the autumn/winter 2015 collection.

It was announced last month that Frida Giannini would be parting company with Gucci, the brand she has been creative director of for 9 years.

It was previously expected that Giannini would take part in the upcoming autumn/winter 2015 collection which will be shown in Milan next month where she was expected to make her final bow.

Gucci has however confirmed today that Giannini "is no longer in her role as creative director."

Giannini leaves the label alongside her partner Patrizio di Marco who was previously CEO of the label in a big shake up for the luxury fashion house. New CEO Marco Bizzari started this month. 


A successor is expected to soon be announced with Alessandro Michele, the label's current head accessory designer currently the front running contender according to WWD.
