NEW YORK — Next month’s Luca Luca runway show will close with a new face taking the final bow. Raul Melgoza will present his first collection as the label’s creative director, moving into the spotlight once reserved for founder Luca Orlandi.
Melgoza’s appointment is just one of several developments at Luca Luca, which was acquired by the Miami-based Equitium Group last May. Equitium managing partner Amir R. Amir has been named to the new post of chief executive officer of Luca Luca, where he will work closely with president Yildiz Blackstone to grow the brand.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
