PARIS — Paco Rabanne has promoted its hip young studio design director Lydia Maurer to the position of creative director for women’s wear. Maurer will present her first collection for the house during Paris Fashion Week in October and will also oversee accessories.
The news comes one month after the house, which is owned by Barcelona-based Puig, revealed that it had parted ways with designer Manish Arora by mutual agreement after two seasons of collaboration. The Indian designer was brought on board last year to revive the brand’s dormant fashion business.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
