He’s ready to have a go on his own, and Christopher Kane has announced he’s leaving his post at Versace’s Versus label.

The well-respected designer’s departure is on good terms, though—he’s embarking on his very own signature brand.

Christopher told WWD, "I am excited about the new Versus strategy, but the time has come to dedicate all my focus to the future of the Christopher Kane label."
Additionally, Donatella Versace gushed, "I want to thank Christopher for his contribution to Versus over six seasons, during which I have been able to appreciate his extraordinary talent."

"Working with young talented people, and see them grow and develop as I have seen Christopher do over these years, is one of the most rewarding parts of my work. I wish him all the best for the development of his own line. He will always have my total support."
