Jeremy Scott is exiting Moschino. After a decade-long run as the creative director of the Italian luxury fashion house, it was announced on Monday that Scott is stepping down from his role.
In a statement confirming the news, Moschino called Scott’s career, which began with his Fall/Winter collection in 2014, “groundbreaking,” crediting him for “being at the helm” of Moschino and launching “the debates on the role of fashion.”
Scott’s design ethos has always been boundary-pushing and eccentric. He was behind Katy Perry’s now-famous 2019 Met Gala after-party hamburger dress (and her chandelier moment on the Met steps prior), sent models down the runway as flower bouquets and butterflies, and had successful collaborations with brands from H&M, Uggs and Adidas to The Sims.
Over the years, everyone from Madonna to Miley Cyrus to Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion wore Scott’s designs or walked his runways, each embracing the designer’s cheeky and loud pieces.
“I am fortunate to have had the opportunity of working with the creative force that is Jeremy Scott. I would like to thank him for his ten years of commitment to Franco Moschino’s legacy House and for ushering in a distinct and joyful vision that will forever be a part of Moschino history,” Aeffe S.p.A. Chairman Massimo Ferretti said, in a press release.
Scott thanked Ferretti for giving him the opportunity to lead such an “iconic house” and thanked his fans “who celebrated him, his collections, and his visions,” adding that “without you, none of this would be possible.”
During most of his tenure at Moschino, Scott was also producing his eponymous label, which suddenly stopped appearing on the fashion show schedule in 2019, something Scott said was due to his work at Moschino keeping him too busy to be able to do both brands justice.
Moschino’s next creative director has yet to be revealed, nor has Scott’s next move.
