Luxury fashion house Tod's has just announced that its Creative Director Alessandra Facchinetti, has stepped down from her role, which she's held since 2013. Prior to her position at Tod's, Facchinetti's fashion journey included stints at Valentino and Gucci. Facchinetti had also launched her own line Uniqueness, which has since stopped production. Known for incorporating femininity as well as elegance into her designs, Facchinetti is also credited for increasing the brand's visibility in social media circles.

Facchinetti joins a growing list of designers who have left top posts in recent times including Alber Elbaz, Hedi Slimane and Massimiliano Giornetti.
