Creative Director Giles Deacon is leaving Emanuel Ungaro after two seasons, becoming the sixth designer to leave the French fashion house in as many years. The others include Giambattista Valli, Vincent Darré, Peter Dundas, Esteban Cortazar and Estrella Archs, who worked alongside short-term artistic advisor Lindsay Lohan for one season. Deacon's departure was a mutual decision, Ungaro chief executive Jeffry M. Aronsson says. [Telegraph]
