Jonathan Saunders Named Diane Von Furstenberg's Chief Creative Officer
Looks like he won’t be joining Dior after all.
The rumor that Jonathan Saunders would succeed Raf Simons at Dior has been proven false with news that he’s actually been named as chief creative officer for Diane Von Furstenberg. Five months prior, the Scottish designer shuttered his eponymous label with no word on what he’d be doing next. Of the appointment, Diane Von Furstenberg herself says:
“Jonathan’s extraordinary passion for colours and prints, his effortless designs, and his desire to make women feel beautiful make him the perfect creative force to lead DVF into the future. I could not have found a cooler, more intelligent designer and I cannot wait to watch him shine as our chief creative officer.”
