Giles Deacon For Ungaro Role?
Giles Deacon is rumoured to be working with Emanuel Ungaro after he was seen lunching with the fashion house's owner Asim Abdullah.
Giles Deacon is being lined up for a position at Emanuel Ungaro.
The British designer would replace the brand's previous artistic adviser Lindsay Lohan, who had a poorly-received first collection for the fashion house last October.
According to Women's Wear Daily, Ungaro's owner Asim Abdullah was seen dining with Giles in a Paris restaurant, although both have refused to comment on the rumours.
Emanuel Ungaro set up his self-titled fashion house in 1965, but since his retirement in 2004 the brand has failed to find a long-term collaborator.
Previous collaborators at Ungaro include Esteban Cortazar, Vincent Darre and Peter Dundas, who now works for Emilio Pucci.
Giles - who was educated at the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design - set up his own label in 2004.
Darlington-born Giles has a history of collaborations, staring his career working with French fashion designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac and Italian luxury goods firm Bottega Veneta.
