Artistic director Ackermann leaves LVMH's Berluti division

PARIS, March 30 (Reuters) - Haider Ackermann is stepping down as artistic director at LVMH's upmarket shoes brand Berluti, LVMH said on Friday.

LVMH, the world's biggest luxury goods group, said it would announce Ackermann's successor at Berluti shortly. Berluti is headed by Antoine Arnault.

LVMH hired Ackermann, a respected stylist who had created his own brand in 2003, in September 2016.

Ackermann's departure comes just a few weeks after LVMH's Christian Dior label announced that its menswear designer Kris Van Assche was leaving the label after 11 years. (Reporting by Sudip Kar-Gupta; editing by Richard Lough)
