Yesterday Vogue.co.uk reported that Giles Deacon, after only two seasons, has left his position as creative director of Emanuel Ungaro.
The British designer received rave reviews after his debut collection with the grand French fashion house. For spring/summer 2011, the media applauded his ability to create evening gowns that had just the coquettish appeal the label was once famous for. Deacon reminded his audience that Ungaro is one of the last remaining couture houses and women still travel to its Avenue Montaigne headquarters to order precious, made-to-measure designs created by some of the most accomplished technicians in the world.
However, hoping to focus on his own brand and upcoming projects Giles Deacon has decided now is the time to move on.
