Josep Font is stepping down from the role of Creative Director for the Spanish fashion house Delpozo, the company informed in a statement. The news comes just one week after Delpozo’s Spring/Summer 2019 Fashion Show at London Fashion Week.
Font joined Delpozo six years ago, after Grupo Perfumes y Diseño, the company which held the label’s fragrance license since 1992, acquired it following the death of its founder, Jesús del Pozo. Grupo Perfumes y Diseño also holds perfume licenses for several other luxury brands, including Missoni, Versace, Moschino and Salvatore Ferragamo.
"Josep has been a key figure for the relaunch of Delpozo. Over the past six years, he has helped rejuvenate and continue the legacy of Jesús", said Pedro Trolez, President of Delpozo and owner of Grupo Perfumes y Diseño.
"It's been a very rewarding experience and I am very proud of what we have achieved together in the short space of six years", added Font. His replacement will be announced at a later date.
As for the designer’s future plans, the statement mentions Font had a namesake label before joining Delpozo, suggesting he might relaunch it.
