Emanuel Ungaro Appoints Estrella Archs as Chief Designer and Lindsay Lohan as

Artistic Advisor, Effective Immediately


NEW YORK, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --


    Designer Estrella Archs has been named Chief Designer of the House of

Ungaro. Lindsay Lohan will also be joining Ungaro in a newly created position

as Artistic Advisor. Both Ms. Archs and Ms. Lohan have been collaborating on

the Spring/Summer 2010 runway collection unveiling on October 4, 2009 during

Paris Fashion Week.


    They will work together using their combined talent, instincts and

intuition to define and promote the Ungaro brand, thus replacing the

established mold of designer-only led fashion with a new vision of designer

and consumer-led fashion.


    "Twenty-first Century muses are extroverts whose personal style and

experience gives them a strong creative and artistic focus. Thus was our

vision of combining the eye of a fashion creator (Ms. Archs) with the eye of

the ultimate luxury consumer, a celebrity (Ms. Lohan)," says Mounir

Moufarrige, President of Emanuel Ungaro worldwide. "Mr. Ungaro's success was

based on his genius for design and his controversial eye to whom his consumer

was," says Mr. Mouffarige. "Lindsay is a world consumer with a clear eye for

fashion."


    Ms. Archs has worked for Nina Ricci and Emilio Pucci, under the artistic

direction of Christian Lacroix, as well as for Miuccia Prada at Prada upon

completing her Master's degree at Central Saint Martins in London. "I was

attracted to her high talent, fashion experience and design sophistication,"

says Mr. Moufarrige. "Estrella's interpretation of the Ungaro woman clearly

reflects the brand's DNA."
