Israeli designer Alber Elbaz is leaving the fashion house he helped propel to the top over the past 14 years, fashion website WWD reported Wednesday.

According to the website, there will be an official announcement about his departure in the coming days.

Elbaz has recently been at odds with Lanvin owner Shaw-Lan Wang and CEO Michèle Huiban, sources reportedly told WWD. Lanvin employees have been allegedly informed of the development, although the company refused to comment.

Elbaz, who was born in Morocco and moved to Israel with his family when he was 10 years old, studied at the Shenkar College of Engineering and Design in Ramat Gan, Israel. He moved to New York in 1985, and worked for firms such as Geoffrey Beene and Yves Saint Laurent before joining Lanvin in 2001.
