Josep Font is the new creative director at the fashion design house Jesus del Pozo. Josep, who has a wide experience in fashion has been invited on many occasions by the "Federation Française de la Couture" to show his collections at the Haute Couture Fashion Week and will be conducting the creative side of this brand. "It is an honour for me to be able to preserve the legacy of Jesus del Pozo, someone whom I truly admired.
The brand Jesus del Pozo was fully acquired by the company Perfumes y Diseño after the death of Jesus del Pozo last August. But the relationship between these two brands dates back to 1992, when they produced the perfume Duende, having launched so far eleven fragrances under the name Jesus del Pozo.
The company aims at pursuing an international strategy and Josep Font will be a crucial element in this strategy given his national and international credibility. After taking del Pozo's perfumes to all corners of the world, The company intends to do the same now as far as clothes are concerned.
The last collection designed by Jesus del Pozo himself was shown at the Madrid Fashion Week - Pasarela Cibeles in September 2011, one month after his death. The brand Jesus del Pozo was present in February in the most recent and now rebpatised Mercedes Benz Madrid Fashion Week and his team has been able to maintain the elegant sobriety which was a hallmark of the late Jesus del Pozo.
