Just three weeks after Jonathan Saunders's exit from DVF, the American fashion house has named a new successor – Nathan Jenden, a familiar face to the house.

With 10 years of working experience at the house of DVF as the designer, before leaving in 2011, Nathan Jenden returns to helm the brand's creative direction.

And now he is appointed as the Chief Design Officer & Vice President, Creative.

Diane von Furstenberg, Founder of DVF, says in an official release, "Nathan is an extremely talented and technically skillful designer who also has a great gift at surrounding himself with young, emerging talent."

"He totally embraces the DVF woman and the brand enjoyed its greatest commercial success during his tenure."

As the creative helm of the house, Nathan will be reporting directly to Diane von Furstenberg and DVF’s board.

"I want to give the DVF girl what she wants when she wants it." – Nathan Jenden

As for Nathan, he says, "I see DVF as being more relevant today than it ever was in its message of self-empowerment while being dynamic and modern."

"I want to give the DVF girl what she wants when she wants it, and with the joie de vivre and sense of purpose that epitomizes Diane, DVF the brand and the spirit of women today."

A perfect fit for the brand, Nathan has proven his synergy with DVF as he had once led the brand to raving success in the 2000s prior to his exit.

And his runway debut is coming very soon. This coming Fall/Winter 2018 in New York in February 2018 will mark his first collection for DVF.
