After a decade of working with fashion house Moschino as its creative director, Jeremy Scott has called it quits. Moschino led the forefront in innovative solutions when pandemic constraints kept designers off the runways, instead creating high-production short videos.
“These past 10 years at Moschino have been a wonderful celebration of creativity and imagination. I am so proud of the legacy I am leaving behind,” Scott said in a statement. “I would like to thank Massimo Ferretti for the honour of leading this iconic house. I would also like to thank all my fans around the world who celebrated me, my collections, and my vision, for without you none of this would be possible.”
With styles like Marie Antoinette-inspired short pannier skirts, paper doll themes, and evening dresses integrating inflatable pool toys, Scott was known for theatrical presentations, extravagant styling, and a humorous take on the zeitgeist. Also, he collaborated with H&M, Mattel on a Barbie capsule collection, and The Sims to a line of virtual silhouette.
Scott first joined Moschino in 2013 after Rossella Jardini helmed the fashion house for two decades. His first collection, released in 2014, centered around the theme American consumerism and featured pieces with the logo of McDonald’s, Hershey’s, and Budweiser. Models wore knits, knit skirt suits, massive gold jewelry, and sky-high mohawks for his farewell collection, which was displayed at Milan Fashion Week in February.
Throughout his tenure as Moschino’s creative director, Scott has dressed a variety of A-listers. Some of his note worthy designs were seen at the MET Gala and SuperBowl. For Instance, he dressed Cardi B in an ethereal pearl-encrusted dress and headpiece in 2018, dressed Perry as a chandelier in 2019 and sent Megan Thee Stallion in a mythological-themed feather-and-armor gown in 2022.
He has also worked with Angela Bassett and Tessa Thompson for the Oscars and Vanity Fair after-party.
In light of his resignation, Massimo Ferretti, Chairman of Aeffe S.p.A is fortunate to have worked with a creative force. “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 10 years of commitment to Franco Moschino’s legacy and for ushering in a distinct and joyful vision that will forever be a part of Moschino history.”
