Sophia Kokosalaki is quitting Diesel Black Gold. She was
associated with the brand as creative director for three years. She had been designing the Diesel Black Gold women's line since June 2009. Her final collection (spring/summer 2013) will be showcased during the upcoming September New York Fashion Week, as has been the case for the last six seasons.
With Sophia, Diesel had become a reference, for press and buyers, in the contemporary fashion segment. On her tenure, Sophia Kokosalaki said, “The last three years I have spent at Diesel Black Gold have been a very interesting and enjoyable experience. I would like to thank the whole DBG team for their hard work and support in helping me to establish this line. I am now looking forward to new challenges and wish Diesel Black Gold every success in the future”.
The company will announce a new womenswear designer early October.
