Today Diane von Furstenburg announced Scottish designer Jonathan Sanders as her new Chief Creative Officer of DVF. The London based designer shuttered his own brand in December, and since has been the subject of much fashion gossip, most recently that he was going to Christian Dior.
DVF however seems like the perfect fit for Saunders, with his affinity for colour and designs that women actually want to wear. Diane herself agrees, saying “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.”
