Despite Many Rumors Otherwise, Gareth Pugh Says He's Never Been Asked to Head Up Another Design House

Despite Many Rumors Otherwise, Gareth Pugh Says He's Never Been Asked to Head Up Another Design House

>> In the past year, Gareth Pugh has been rumored to be taking jobs at both Alexander McQueen and Thierry Mugler. Obviously neither of those worked out — Sarah Burton is now in place at McQueen, and Nicola Formichetti has filled in at Mugler — but when it comes to an opportunity at another label, Pugh says: "I would never say never. I have never been asked so I wouldn't know whether I would say yes or no. If I did do it, it would certainly have to be the right thing. I'm not holding out for that. It would obviously change the way I work and the way I live and I'm quite happy with what I do at the moment so it would have to be a very good offer."

He continued: "There have been so many rumours. How many jobs can one person do? To be honest with you, I thought that the McQueen thing was a little in bad taste with the circumstances surrounding that. Other than the inappropriateness of it, it is vaguely flattering but obviously the inappropriateness did rather take over."

And it sounds like he didn't necessarily feel qualified for the McQueen job: "I met [McQueen] a couple of times but I didn't know him as a person, I never worked with him. They obviously have a very specific way of working there — and Sarah Burton obviously worked with him for a long, long time and to be given that role and responsibility is a tough one. To step into those shoes, I'm not jealous of that situation at all, I don't envy her position. It's flattering but I think a little ill-founded."
