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

Maria Grazia Chiuri Exits Valentino
Valentino has confirmed that Maria Grazia Chiuri is stepping down after 17 years with the Italian fashion house, and eight in her current role as co-creative director. Pierpaolo Piccioli will remain as the brand's sole creative director. Chiuri is widely thought to be joining Dior, which is expected to issue a statement soon.

Patrizio di Marco Joins Dolce & Gabbana
Former Gucci chief executive Patrizio di Marco has joined the board of Dolce & Gabbana. Di Marco ran Kering SA-owned Gucci for six years, but left the company abruptly in December 2014 along with longtime creative director and now wife Frida Giannini.

Belstaff Appoints Creative Director
Belstaff has promoted Delphine Ninous, head of womenswear, to the role of collection creative director following the sudden departure of its head of menswear, Frederik Dyhr. In her new role, Ninous will oversee both the men's and women's collections, as well as the brand's other categories.

Moschino Names General Manager
Gabriele Maggio has been appointed as Moschino's new general manager, effective immediately. He succeeds Corrado Masini, who joined the company in September 2015. Maggio  previously worked for Gucci for six years, and prior to that he worked at Bottega Veneta.

New Heads of PR at Sergio Rossi, Maison Margiela
Maison Margiela has appointed Hervé Cosmao as head of public relations. He will report to Nicolas Frontiere, the house's director of communications. Cosmao was formerly press manager at Louis Vuitton. In an unrelated move, Sergio Rossi has named Laetitia Loffredo as global head of PR.
