LONDON, United Kingdom – BoF compiles the most important professional moves of the week.

Emilio Pucci Names Creative Director
Following the departure of Peter Dundas, Emilio Pucci has appointed Massimo Giorgetti as its new creative director. Giorgetti will split his time between his existing role as creative director for Milan-based label MSGM, and his new job at Pucci, based in Florence. The designer will show his first collection for the house in September.

Roberto Cavalli Taps Peter Dundas
Peter Dundas has been appointed the new creative director of Roberto Cavalli. Formerly creative director of Pucci for seven years, the appointment marks his return to the Roberto Cavalli brand, where he worked between 2002 and 2005. Dundas' first collection for the house will be presented in September.

Paul Smith Hires First Creative Director
In a move that will allow eponymous designer Paul Smith to spend more time on creative projects, Simon Homes has been appointed as the British brand's first creative director. Homes has been with Paul Smith since 2004, previously working as head of men's design.

Suno Names Chief Operating Officer
New York-based womenswear label Suno has appointed Maloni Goss as chief operating officer. Goss joins from Chanel, where she was director of wholesale strategy development, and previously held roles at Gap Inc. and Polo Ralph Lauren.

British GQ Appoints Publisher
Vanessa Kingori has been named publisher of British GQ, succeeding Jamie Bill, who was promoted to executive director of global development at Condé Nast. Kingori is currently associate publisher of fashion at British GQ and publisher of GQ style. Previously, Kingori was fashion manager of Esquire, and acting group head of magazines at the Evening Standard.

Grazia Taps Pearlman as Editor
Natasha Pearlman, deputy editor at British Elle, has been appointed as the editor of Grazia. Pearlman takes over from editor-in-chief Jane Bruton, who is leaving to join Telegraph Media Group as director of lifestyle and deputy editor.
