KOKOSALAKI TO EXIT DIESEL: Diesel is parting ways with Sophia Kokosalaki, who has designed the denim brand’s upscale Diesel Black Gold women’s collection since June 2009. Her final designs for the range will be shown at Diesel’s upcoming New York Fashion Week show in September. A new designer for Black Gold will be announced by Diesel in October. “I am extremely grateful to Sophia for her work and the achievement of the growth of this line,” said Renzo Rosso, founder and president of Diesel’s parent company, Only The Brave Group. “Thanks to her talent, Diesel Black Gold has defined its clear identity as a premium stand-alone label.”
