Schiaparelli to show couture despite creative director departure
The great return
The avant-garde couture house has now safely secured time slots for two runway shows this month on January 26 – one for press, another for clients – helping start the four-day Haute Couture extravaganza in the French capital.
A Schiaparelli spokesman said an in-house team has designed the Spring/Summer 2015 couture collection as they await the appointment of its new creative director. Italian entrepreneur Diego Della Valle runs Schiaparelli, reviving the brand after 60 years of dormancy, with former designer Marco Zanini known for his past two flamboyant and unique Schiaparelli collections.
