Jeremy Scott has announced he will leave his post as creative director at Moschino, after holding the position for a decade.
The iconic designer took to Instagram to share the news, with an image of himself and Gigi Hadid at Moschino’s 2019 Spring show, writing, “After 10 years I am announcing today that I will be leaving Moschino. I’ve had a blast creating designs that will live on forever 💘.”
“As I close this chapter I am filled with excitement & anticipation and cant wait to share with you all what I have in store for you next!” he added.
The brand also shared a statement via Instagram stories, saying, “Scott has penned a fundamental chapter in the legacy of the brand with his fearless and show stopping pop-camp style and incisive humour – true to the renowned codes of the House.”
Under Scott’s eye, Moschino became known for its instantly identifiable avant-garde aesthetic. Among his most iconic designs were a chandelier costume complete with working lights, worn by Katy Perry at the 2019 Met Gala (aptly themed ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’), a McDonald’s-inspired collection in 2014, and a Barbie-esque collaboration in 2015 that saw models rollerblade down the runway.
This penchant for pop-culture influences was inherited by Scott from Franco Moschino who, at the helm of the brand, produced thought-provoking pieces inspired by a growing culture of excess and consumerism. Scott took over from Moschino in October 2013, continuing his legacy of larger-than-life interpretations of current culture, with an emphasis on extravagance and glamour.
No announcement has been made as to who will take over Moschino, but we can only hope Scott’s predecessor brings us even more memorable fashion moments.
