Giles Deacon for Emanuel Ungaro......

Exciting news, according to WWD Giles Deacon is confirmed to be the new creative director of Emanuel Ungaro taking over design duties at the French fashion house following the departure last month of Estrella Archs, the chief designer hired to work beside former artistic adviser Lindsay Lohan. His first collection will be presented during Paris Fashion Week in October. Can’t wait to see what he designs for Emanuel Ungaro!

“I obviously don’t want to infringe upon my own line, but I like things that are very feminine, lots of color, great prints, great quality, some unusual cuts. All of those things that I like in the world of fashion design I’m going to bring to what I feel is appropriate for the Ungaro woman,” he said.
“Yes, I’m totally aware and respectful of the pressure but at the same time, I’ve run my own business for eight years and worked in lots of places,” he said. “I think as soon as you start worrying and thinking about that too much, you’re not concentrating on doing good work, which is the most important thing.”
