After just two years at the helm, Peter Copping has resigned from Oscar de la Renta, begging the question: who will replace him? Copping was chosen by the late De la Renta himself before his death in October 2014.

"After almost two years at Oscar de la Renta, personal circumstances require me to return to Europe," Copping says in a statement released this morning. "I have loved my time in New York where I hope to return at some point in future."
