New York City -- Gap said its chief design director, Patrick Robinson, is leaving the company effective immediately. He had been executive VP of Gap Global Design for Adult and Body for four years.
The company said it will conduct a search for a successor.
Pam Wallack, head of the Gap Creative Center, made the decision to oust Robinson and will manage the design teams in the interim.
His departure follows a series of management shuffles and organizational changes aimed at reviving sagging sales of the brand.
