EXITING FAÇONNABLE: Ludovic Le Gourrièrec is exiting as deputy managing director of Façonnable effective today, WWD has learned. Reached by telephone, Le Gourrièrec confirmed his departure, but declined further comment.
Le Gourrièrec joined Façonnable in 2013 and spearheaded a repositioning and expansion drive after installing Dublin-born designer Daniel Kearns as artistic director. Le Gourrièrec’s next move could not immediately be learned, and his successor has yet to be named. Moustapha El-Solh is chief executive officer of the Nice-based firm. Façonnable officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Before joining Façonnable, Le Gourrièrec headed the men’s wear division at Yves Saint Laurent in Paris, and had also worked at Lanvin and John Galliano.
