Jonathan Saunders: The New Chief Creative Officer at DVF
Earlier this week, Diane Von Furstenberg announced that Jonathan Saunders would be appointed as the New Chief Creative officer of the brand. This may come as a surprise to many – Saunders resigned and closed his own label in early December last year.
The famous British designer is best known for his love of prints and use of certain techniques such as silk screen printing, so joining the DVF label is almost a too perfect decision. Diane Von Furstenberg stated that it was ‘Jonathan’s extraordinary passion for colours and prints’ as well as other commending factors which made him such as strong candidate for the role.
Saunders seemed to be overjoyed at the announcement exclaiming he was ‘ thrilled to be part of its [DVF] next chapter’ according to Vogue. The designer, who has previously worked for labels such as Pucci, will hopefully propel the DVF brand and make it even stronger in the fashion world today.
