At 82 years of age, designer Oscar de la Renta has named a successor. Peter Copping, formerly of Nina Ricci, will take over as the creative director of the fashion house. As de la Renta said in an issued statement, "Our industry has not always done the best job when it comes to changes in design leadership. My hope is that, in leading this selection and actively participating in the transition, I can ensure the right design future for our company and brand."

According to the Times, Copping will be responsible for all of ODLR's offerings, including its much-beloved bridal line. He starts November 3rd, and his first de la Renta collection will show at New York Fashion Week in February.
