Lindsay Lohan's foray into fashion with Emanuel Ungaro was the equivalent of Ashlee Simpson's into TV on Melrose Place. So the designer said (if not in those words).
The founder of the fashion house is publicly criticizing Lindsay Lohan’s recent collection, for which she teamed up with Ungaro as in "artistic advisor."
That's funny in itself.
Ungaro told an audience at the Estoril film festival in Portugal that the collection on which Lohan served as fashion consultant was nothing short of "a disaster.”
The designer tried to distance himself from his own line, saying, “I’m furious but there isn’t a thing I can do. I have absolutely no link with that house.”
He sold the company to an investment house in 2005.
The face of a can't miss fashion mogul.
Lindsay Lohan was announced as artistic advisor to the house in September and, a month later, presented her first collection, a collaboration with Estrella Archs.
At its showing in October, the Lohan/Archs collaboration was trashed by critics. Ungaro said that with the project, the company is “well on its way to losing its soul.”
Ungaro said, “This happens to a lot of designers. We were owners, responsible for the designs and destiny. But if you give up your house, you give up your soul."
Harsh! This guy should team up with Michael Lohan on his next press release.
