The Greek fashion designer decided to leave her position at the Italian brand, in order to focus exclusively on the development of her own ready-to-wear brand. 

Diesel company hasn't revealed anything yet, affirming the new Head Designer's name will be unveiled only after the last fashion show signed by Sophia Kokosalaki, planned on September 11 in New York.

Nevertheless, Andreas Melbostad, who ruled the creative team at Phi, one of the most popular brand in New York until the economic crisis, from 2003 to 2009, fits pretty well with Diesel Black Gold's spirit. In fact he concurred to create a rock-chic woman at Phi, really close to the Diesel Black Gold female idea.
