Jonathan Akeroyd has moved from UK label Alexander McQueen to the Italian design house. Akeroyd previously worked at Harrods to help them expand and improve the McQueen brand. He helped to manage it through the difficult times when Alexander McQueen died in 2010.
As fashion business expert Eric Musgrave said, “It is very interesting to see a Brit hired to run a top luxury Italian label. He is certainly regarded as a very capable manager.”
He will be moving to Milan next month when he joins Versace, the label founded by Gianni Versace in 1978.
