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 28 July.

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.
