"The strong media impact of the past two seasons has enabled Paco Rabanne to partake with strength in the universe of contemporary fashion," it added, without explaining why Arora was leaving.
Arora, who has his own line of apparel, said in the statement: "Revisiting the Paco Rabanne fashion was a very enriching experience and an exceptional artistic and human adventure. I am, today, happy to have accomplished the mission I was trusted with in order to cast this iconic brand back into the spotlight."
