As Lady Gaga revamps herself for the release of ARTPOP, Nicola Formichetti, her long-time stylist and the former Creative Director of Mugler, revealed he won’t be working with her this time around.

In an interview with Women’s Wear Daily, Formichetti revealed that his increasing commitments with Uniqlo and Diesel have kept him too busy to work with the pop star, but she’s in good hands. “She's going to be my BFF forever, but my ex-assistant Brandon is heading that project,” he told the trade. “I'm too busy with [other commitments]. I've done two albums with her, it's been like five years, and you know, I'm always going to be involved somehow, but I cannot do it every day. She changes 12 times a day; it's insane.”

For now, Formichetti is enjoying spreading his creativity all around the globe. “I live between Europe, America and Asia. I've terminated my other jobs to concentrate on Uniqlo, and…I still have time to do lots of other things,” he explained. “It's been a really great journey, you know, I started from a small job window styling of the New York stores and slowly became closer and closer, and now I look at almost every part of the creative development, from first development to advertisement to collections.”
