Emanuel Ungaro is going through an "internal reorganisation" which means it won’t be able to deliver its Spring/Summer 12 line.
The fashion company has undergone a lot of changes over the last few years, most recently reportedly seeing the exit of Chief Executive Officer Jeffry Aronsson after just six months.
It’s now been announced the firm is undergoing changes so significant they are impacting its lines. Stores have been told they won’t be getting Ungaro’s Spring/Summer 12 line, while there will be on no Fall/Winter 12 collection displayed during the upcoming Fashion Weeks. Meetings to view the pre-Fall range have also been cancelled.
“We are going through an internal reorganisation to support a new business model that will allow the company to be profitable in the near future. The company remains financially viable and we believe that the brand will continue to thrive under the new strategy that we will discuss in the coming months,” said the company’s owner Asim Abdullah to WWD.
Although it was widely reported that Aronsson left the firm last month, Ungaro haven’t confirmed it. He was brought in to help improve the company.
In September British designer Giles Deacon became the sixth designer in as many years to leave the brand after designing just two collections.
