Estrella Archs Leaves Ungaro

Estrella Archs has quit Emanuel Ungaro.

The chief designer decided to leave her position at the French fashion house, citing "irreconcilable differences", and now wants to concentrate on her own label.

Her spokesperson said: "Estrella Archs announces that she has left her job as chief designer of Emanuel Ungaro due to irreconcilable differences related to the creative direction of the brand. Estrella Archs will continue developing her own brand, established in 2007, and presenting her collections in the Paris Fashion Week."

The fashion house are now looking for someone to replace her, with British designer Giles Deacon said to be the favourite.

Estrella's departure comes hot on the heels of Lindsay Lohan parting ways with the company after she was brought in as artistic adviser.

Her debut collection was critically panned and she wasn't involved in the range which was showcased at Paris Fashion Week earlier this year.

However, she now has another clothing line, 6126, and the US firm's president Kristi Kaylor has come out to defend her.

She said: "Lindsay was frustrated she didn't get to be as involved as she wanted to be.

"I work with her, and she comes to every meeting on time. She's very engaged. In two years, she's never let me down. She's never not returned an email or phone call. She has a heart of gold. She just needs people to believe in her."
