UPDATE: Despite rumors, Esteban Cotazar recently revealed that he is still with the fashion house. “I am still there,”said Cortazar, when asked about the Ungaro drama. “We are trying to work things out. We have had some differences but hopefully things will work out for the best, whether I am there or not.”
Following up on last week's breaking news, Esteban Cortazar is now suing Emanuel Ungaro. The young designer has apparently left the fashion house after conflict over new marketing strategies of using celebrities for future ad campaigns — rumors suggested that Ungaro was looking at Lindsay Lohan to act as its "creative consultant." Ungaro is keeping mum, but sources indicate that the house is expected to settle with Esteban.
