Oscar de la Renta’s creative director Peter Copping exited the company. “After almost two years at Oscar de la Renta, personal circumstances require me to return to Europe. I have loved my time in New York where I hope to return at some point in the future”said Peter in a statement released by the company Wednesday night.
Peter Copping was named as Oscar De La Renta’s creative director just days before Mr. de la Renta’s death in October 2014. De la Renta called Copping “a great talent … along with our shared design sensibilities, we both have a deep curiosity about the wider world, from music and art to architecture and gardens.”
