Just six days after it was announced that Raf Simons has stepped down from Christian Dior, and weeks after Alexander Wang showcased his last collection for Balenciaga, the fashion world has suffered yet another blow; this time in the form of Alber Elbaz, who has left his 14-year position at the helm of French fashion house Lanvin.

In a statement that was released to the press yesterday afternoon Alber explained “At this time of my departure from Lanvin on the decision of the company’s majority shareholder, I wish to express my gratitude and warm thoughts to all those who have worked with me passionately on the revival of Lanvin over the last 14 years…Together, we have met the creative challenges presented by Lanvin and have restored its radiance and have returned it to its rightful position among France’s absolute luxury houses”

While the separation does not appear to be welcomed by either Alber or many of the employees of the company, who were said to be in tears and rallied behind their creative leader demanding an explanation from the company about it’s future plans, Alber wished the company would reach “the business vision it needs to engage in the right way forward.”

Let's relive Alber Elbaz’s best moments at the house of Lanvin with our favorite red carpet moments:
