After a whopping 14 years of service for Parisian design house Lanvin, Alber Elbaz has stepped down from his post as creative director due to "the decision of the company's majority stakeholder."
Sources say the underlying reason for Elbaz's departure stem from disagreements with company CEO Michele Huiban and owner Shaw-Lan Wang.
On leaving Lanvin, Elbaz has written: "I wish to express my gratitude and warm thoughts to all those who have worked with me passionately on the revival of Lanvin over the past 14 years; express my affection to my wonderful colleagues in the Lanvin ateliers who accompanied me, and who enriched and supported my work.
"Together, we have met the creative challenge presented by Lanvin and have restored its radiance and returned it to its rightful position among France's absolute luxury fashion houses."
