Giles Deacon Officially In At Ungaro

Posted: Updated:

PARIS — Struggling French fashion house Emanuel Ungaro says it has hired British designer Giles Deacon as creative director.

The appointment comes in the wake of a wave of recent defections from the Paris-based label, which in recent months has seen the departures of its former CEO, the designers for both the women's and men's labels, and its short-lived artistic adviser, Lindsay Lohan.

Deacon is a graduate of the prestigious Central Saint Martins school of design and has had his own critically acclaimed label since 2004.

The appointment, announced Tuesday, makes Deacon the latest in a long series of designers to take a stab at turning around Ungaro, which has been bleeding money since the retirement of its founder and namesake in 2004.
