It’s been about a month since rumors started flying about Giles Deacon designing for Emanuel Ungaro. But now it’s REALLY OFFICIAL, as in WWD announced it official – Giles Deacon is now the Creative Director of Ungaro and his first collection for the house will be presented during Paris Fashion Week in October.
Deacon will continue his own line as well as his collaborations with high street retailer New Look, while he takes on the new position for Ungaro. Things may have hit rock bottom for the luxury house when Lindsay Lohan was artistic adviser, and honestly I don’t think chief designer Estrella Archs had a fair shot with Lindsay’s involvement, so as I’ve said before, things can only go up from here! Clean slate, show us watcha got Giles!
