BREAKING NEWS ⚡️ After bringing the @mmissoni ready-to-wear license in house, the @missoni Group is working on a plan to innovate both the style and positioning of the collection and this project will be led by the new Creative Director, ME. After a few years spent pursuing other professional projects, some of which I am still working on, being identified as the person who can lead the future course of the new @mmissoni fills me with pride.
Margherita left the company back in 2015 to pursue other professional projects including her own independent children’s line, which is now closed.
“I am both proud and overjoyed to welcome Margherita back into the Missoni Group as the creative director of M Missoni”, her mother Angela said. “In her professional trajectory within and outside the company, Margherita has demonstrated her considerable skills. I am confident that Margherita’s talents will make M Missoni a relevant brand for the years to come.”
