After just 19 months and a relocation to New York, Jonathan Saunders has announced he is stepping down as Chief Creative Officer of Diane Von Furstenberg. The Scottish designer’s last collection for pre-autumn/winter 2018 was unveiled last month. Diane Von Furstenberg had personally appointed Saunders for the role and thanked him for his “beautiful work and the effort and dedication he has put into DVF in the last 18 months. He will leave an important and lasting heritage to the brand”. Saunders was responsible for all product categories, store design, website design, a new corporate brand identity and marketing including advertising campaigns for the iconic brand, established in the 1970’s.
