Berlin — After only five months, Rena Lange’s creative director, Ludwig Heissmeyer, is leaving the now insolvent Munich fashion house.
As reported, Rena Lange filed for insolvency in September.
The company said Heissmeyer is exiting the firm “on friendly terms and by mutual consent,” effective immediately. The former design director at Carolina Herrera in New York joined Lange in May. He could not be reached for comment.
A Lange spokesman said that the design team at Rena Lange will be “responsible for the design process for the time being.”
Provisional insolvency administrator Christian Gerloff is currently in negotiations with investors about the continuation of operative business and said negotiations should be completely swiftly.
However, the first meeting of creditors on October 20 lacked a quorum, and is to be followed by a second meeting scheduled for November 17. At that time, a quorum will no longer be required to vote in a joint representative for the creditors group.
