A chapter has officially ended in Givenchy history. The brand announced that its creative director, Ricardo Tisci, would be departing the famed French fashion brand Thursday, just days before New York Fashion Week is set to kick off the women’s ready-to-wear collections.

Tisci, who has helmed the brand for 12 years, stepped down after his contract with Givenchy ended, WWD announced. The departure was said to be “amicable” sources told the fashion outlet. Tisci’s contract effectively expired on Tuesday, meaning that his final collections were the season’s last fall menswear and fall couture collections. The news confirms that the designer will not be showing a collection for Paris Fashion Week in March for women’s ready-to-wear. The autumn women’s collection will be designed by the Givenchy studio, according to WWD.

The news follows another renowned designer’s recent departure. Chloe creative director Clare Waight Keller announced her departure from the fashion house just days prior.

The designer is known to host spectacular shows that draw A-list celebrities like Kim Kardashian (she donned a Givenchy couture gown for her wedding), Cate Blanchett, Kanye West and Beyonce.

Speculation has surfaced in recent days over the legendary designer’s possible move to Versace. Although a creative director has yet to be announced to helm Givenchy, some names have been rumored for the role of creative director at Givenchy.

Hedi Slimane The French designer left Saint Laurent in March of 2016 and has since turned to photography. Despite the career change, the New York Times recently noted that Slimane did not rule out a return to fashion.

Peter Dundas He left Roberto Cavalli, just 19 months into the position, in October 2016.

Clare Waight Keller Chloe announced British designer’s exit from the brand Monday. Her final collection will be shown next month for Paris Fashion Week.

Peter Copping The former Oscar de la Renta designer departed the brand due to “personal circumstances” according to the New York Times. He left the fashion house in July of 2016.
