The news of the death of the well-known Italian fashion designer Davide Renne, who passed away at the age of 46, just 10 days after taking over the reins of Moschino as artistic director, is causing a shock in the fashion world.

The famous house announced the unpleasant fact about the sudden loss of the new member of the Italian luxury brand, with a post on Instagram.

“There are no words to describe the pain we are experiencing at this dramatic moment. Davide was only with us for a few days when a sudden illness took him from us all too soon. We still can’t believe what happened. With Davide, we were working on an ambitious plan, in an atmosphere of excitement and optimism for the future. Although he was only with us for a very short time, Davide was immediately able to make himself loved and respected. Today we are left with the responsibility of continuing what his imagination and creativity had only envisioned. Our deepest condolences to his family and friends,” said Massimo Ferretti, President of Aeffe SpA via the company’s official Instagram account.
