BEDFORD, N.Y. -- Fashion icon (and longtime Bedford resident) Oscar de la Renta has named Peter Copping as creative director according to The New York Times, putting into place a succession plan for the brand.
Copping, the 48-year-old former artistic director of Nina Ricci, who officially left that brand at the beginning of October, will be responsible for all product categories, including ready-to-wear, accessories, bridal and home décor, according to the report. He will report to de la Renta and Alex Bolen, chief executive of the company (and the designer’s stepson-in-law), according to the report.
Copping's appointment makes him one of the few designers in the modern fashion industry to have been anointed as an heir apparent by a sitting creator, according to The Times. Read more here.
