Texas-born Daniel Roseberry took over as artistic director at Schiaparelli following Bertrand Guyon’s departure in April 2019, having previously spent 11 years at ready-to-wear brand Thom Browne . His debut collection had “an audacity that had a perfect, refreshing logic,” said BoF Editor-at-Large Tim Blanks in his review.
Roseberry studied at Fashion Institute of Technology in New York before starting his career at Thom Browne in 2008. Over the last five years, Roseberry acted as the brand’s design director of men’s and women’s collections.
In April 2019, Schiaparelli announced the departure of Bertrand Guyon, who held the role of design director for four years. A week later, Daniel Roseberry was announced as Guyon’s successor, to take charge of all collections and projects at the storied Place Vendôme house. The designer debuted his first collection for the house for the Autumn/Winter 2019 couture season, despite never working in a couture atelier before. Notably, he also does not speak French but instead, another member of the atelier translates his instructions.
