Oscar De La Renta is believed to be scouting for a new creative director for his label, and Olivier Theyskens and Prabal Gurung are being considered.
Oscar De La Renta is reportedly looking for a new creative director.
The 81-year-old designer is looking for someone to join his label which he launched back in 1965 and has a few people in mind who he is considering for the coveted role.
According to the New York Post newspaper, Olivier Theyskens - who has previously worked with Rochas, Nina Ricci, and Theory - and Prabal Gurung are in the line up, while Jason Wu was also a contender before he took the post of creative director at Hugo Boss last year.
Last year, Oscar de la Renta extended an offer to John Galliano after his anti-Semitic comments in 2011 saw his career move in a downward spiral.
They worked in his New York City studio to help create a collection ahead of showing at New York Fashion Week in February and it is believed they have also been in talks for a more permanent position within the company.
However, it is said they couldn't reach an agreement over the money required to employ John's preferred atelier team.
Ahead of their upcoming tour, and prior to the release of their long awaited album, Smoke Fairies played a great warm-up gig at Elsewhere in Margate.
