Giles Deacon Named Creative Director at Emanuel Ungaro

After a confusing season with Lindsay Lohan at the artistic helm (a decision over which then-designer Esteban Cortazar left the company) and having fired Estrella Archs (who was probably only hired because she agreed to work with Lohan), Emanuel Ungaro has finally decided to place a real designer in creative director position—Giles Deacon! Deacon, who will continue producing his namesake collection, will stage his first presentation for Ungaro during Paris fashion week this October and will forgo runway shows for the first two seasons.

“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,” Deacon said of designing for the house best represented by frills and fuchsia.

The 40-year-old British designer is not deterred by the revolving door of creatives that have passed through Ungaro since 2004. “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,” Deacon 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.”
