The fashion world seems to be experiencing a new decade shift, as we've seen Michael Herz and Graeme Fidler move from Aquascutum to Bally, and W magazine moving offices and companies, whilst losing Dennis Freedman and Camilla Nickerson, and gaining Stefano Tonchi. In more departures and arrivals, it was announced on Friday that executive vice president of global communications at Oscar de la Renta, Paul O'Regan has resigned to commence a new, undisclosed project after his anticipated trip to Nepal and Tibet.
Arriving at Bottega Veneta to become worldwide director of public relations will be Billy Daley, having worked at Michael Kors and previously spending six and a half years at KCD as publicity director. And finally, beginning yesterday in time for the designer's bridal presentations, Christophe Hebre has joined Reem Acra as president and chief operating officer.

After the announcement that Stefano Tonchi was to take over at W Magazine, industry sources questioned the likelihood that current creative director Dennis Freedman would stay at the publication. So unsurprising to many, Freedman - who has been at the magazine for nearly two decades - announced his departure on Wednesday, along with W's senior fashion editor Camilla Nickerson who is said to be returning to Vogue.
It is Freedman who is accredited with attracting some of the industry's best photographers to W (including Bruce Weber, Steven Klein, Paolo Roversi, Craig McDean and Jeurgen Teller), which essentially thrust the magazine into the spotlight for it's award winning editorials. "I have had the most extraordinary experience working with some of the most talented and brilliant photographers, artists and editors in the world, and these collaborations have brought me unbelievable joy and satisfaction," he told WWD. "For me, this has been one of the greatest opportunities I could ever hope for."
