Fabio Massimo Cacciatori has resigned as chief executive officer of the Gianni Versace fashion house - less than four months after taking up the post.
 
The resignation comes after reports of disputes with company owners Santo Versace and Donatella Versace over the company's restructuring strategy.

Mr Cacciatori planned a range of cost-cutting exercises including store closures, lay-offs and advertising cuts to restructure operations.
 
He will be replaced by Daniele Ballestrazzi, currently chief financial officer.
