Ingo Wilts Exits Elie Tahari

After roughly six months as the brand's creative director, he has left to return to Europe for personal reasons.

SHORT STINT: After roughly six months on the job, Elie Tahari creative director Ingo Wilts has exited to return to Europe for personal reasons, according to the company. “We are grateful to the many contributions Ingo has made to the company and wish him every success in the future,” Elie Tahari said. “He is a gentle soul and I loved working with him.”

Tahari had tapped Wilts in June. The Germany native had been senior vice president and creative director of Kenneth Cole Productions, which, at the time, had just hired former Tahari executive creative director Kobi Halperin as consulting creative director. There are no immediate plans to replace Wilts, and Tahari will continue to design the collection with the in-house team.
