Dundas To Replace Williamson as Top Designer for Pucci
Designer Peter Dundas will succeed Matthew Williamson as the artistic director for Italian fashion house Emilio Pucci as of October 2008.
Norwegian-born Dundas, who succeeds Englishman Matthew Williamson, is an experienced and media friendly designer who has worked for half a dozen European houses throughout his busy career.
Williamson, known for his colorful posh style, held the position for three years; he was initially hailed as the ideal for fit for Pucci. However, since this spring reports had circulated that Pucci was actively looking for a replacement.
The past 8 years have seen numerous design upheavals at Pucci, and Dundas will be the fifth person in this time span to take up the position.
