The Search Is On

A look for Spring 2008 by Jonathan Saunders

Fashion Week Daily notes that San Francisco’s Asim Abdullah, who owns Emanuel Ungaro, was spotted at two London fashion shows this week with Ungaro CEO Mounir Moufarrige. They were seated front row at Jonathan Saunders. Abdullah was asked if he was there to hire the new designer for Ungaro. “It’s forthcoming. We’re in the process of finalizing who our new designer will be,” he said. “We happened to be in London and wanted to look at some shows and see what other people are doing.”
