Jeremy Scott steps down as creative director of luxury Italian house Moschino after 10 years of wild and wacky fashion shows and his elegant way of dressing numerous celebrities.
The company made the announcement Monday.
“Scott has written a seminal chapter in the brand’s legacy with his fearless pop-camp style and incisive humor, true to the renowned house codes,” the company said in an emailed statement.
The American designer took over Moschino in October 2013 with an innovative fall/winter collection which, according to the statement, “launched a thousand debates about the role of fashion in the annals of art, consumerism and social criticism.”
Scott, born in Missouri, has released collections that centered its pop culture and tongue-in-cheek lens on Barbie, aliens, and Ronald McDonald. Katy Perry, Madonna, Rita Ora and Zendaya are among the celebrities who have worn his creations.
Most recently, she dressed a handful of A-listers for the Oscars, including Angela Bassett in a custom ultraviolet hand-draped standout gown with a sweeping bow neckline.
Massimo Ferretti, president of Moschino parent Aeffe SpA, thanked Scott for “paving the way for a distinct and joyful vision that will always be a part of Moschino’s history.”
Scott called his years at Moschino “a wonderful celebration of creativity and imagination.”
He said he was proud of his legacy. He thanked Ferretti along with “all my fans around the world who have celebrated me, my collections and my vision.”
