Creative Director Nathan Jenden Leaving Diane von Furstenberg to Focus on Own Line

>> On Valentine's Day, Nathan Jenden will take his last runway bow as creative director of Diane von Furstenberg before shipping off to focus exclusively on his own collection, launched in 2006.

In his stead, von Furstenberg has hired Yvan Mispelaere, who was a member of Phoebe Philo's design team at Chloe and took a runway bow after her exit.  He then left Chloe to join Gucci under Frida Giannini in 2006.

Jenden has been with von Furstenberg since 2001; she invested in his eponymous line when it launched and will continue to do so after Jenden leaves her company. “I have an interest in his company and I have an interest in his future, and if he wants to show in New York, then I will help him as the president of the CFDA,” von Furstenberg explained.

Jenden admitted he might show in New York in the future; he has been showing in London to give him time between von Furstenberg's show and his own.  He also has plans to expand his collection into resort and accessories in the near future.
