Has the Ungaro Drama Been Solved?

Don’t for get to enter in the Maurices Contest!! It ends Thursday!

From The Cut blog:

With the housekeeping finally complete and Lindsay Lohan and Estrella Archs tossed out like cigarette-burned leggings, Emanuel Ungaro has finally appointed a new designer: Giles Deacon. The designer — a designer first and foremost by profession, it must be noted — will stage a presentation at Paris Fashion Week in October, and probably another presentation for the following Fashion Week in March. He wants to really get his feet wet before hitting the runway — no slapdash “I wasn’t aware of the nipple tassels on the girls until they were walking out” kinds of collections.

Read the rest here.



I think this is great, but there have been so many designers at Ungaro since the namesake designer left six years or so ago. I hope Giles Deacon can do something great with this brand because it needs some help. I actually did my final project on Ungaro. I had to pick a fashion company and rejuvenate it. I can’t wait to get my grades back.

Really… I Mean Really

From Women’s Wear Daily:

According to sources, the French fashion house plans to part ways with Esteban Cortazar, who has shown three collections on the runway. It is understood the designer reached an impasse with Ungaro management over its marketing and advertising strategy.

Mounir Moufarrige, Ungaro’s chief executive officer, is said to be pushing for a celebrity for future ad campaigns to help wake up the house and has been in talks with about half a dozen potential candidates, including Lindsay Lohan, but they would have nothing to do with design.

I am really appalled at the latest development in the Ungaro saga. This is so redic!
