Named creative director of Desigual over the summer, Jean-Paul Goude is in charge of the brand's global image for the next three years, including collections, campaigns and runway shows. He first showcased his styling back on the the New York runway in September 7; a highly anticipated show, following his creative appointment, which created much surprise in the industry.
