Ferragamo menswear designer takes on womenswear

MILAN (Reuters Life!) - Italian fashion house Salvatore Ferragamo has said its menswear designer Massimiliano Giornetti will also take on women's ready-to-wear.

He succeeds Cristina Ortiz, who has worked with the Florence-based fashion house designing the womenswear collections for the last two years, the company said in a statement late on Tuesday.

Ortiz will display her last collection at the Milan September catwalk shows. Giornetti is working on the new womenswear collection for Autumn/Winter 2010.

Family-owned Ferragamo, for whom supermodel Claudia Schiffer has recently modeled, is known for its silk scarves, ties, shoes and bags.
