PARIS — Yvonne Chahine has resigned as Stella McCartney’s president of North American operations, WWD has learned.

A spokeswoman for Gucci Group, which owns 50 percent of McCartney’s fashion house, confirmed Chahine’s exit, but noted she would consult on the business through October.

A successor will not be named. Chahine’s responsibilities will be assumed by James Seuss, chief executive of the London-based design house, the spokeswoman added.

Chahine joined McCartney in June 2002 from Bergdorf Goodman, where she was vice president and divisional merchandise manager of women’s designer collections. Prior to that, she was at Barneys New York.

McCartney operates one retail store in the U.S.: a 4,000-square-foot flagship that opened last September at 429 West 14th St. She also has a 10,000-square-foot flagship in London and plans to launch her first fragrance this fall.
