PARIS — Opting for a hidden talent to ramp up development at Azzaro, the Paris-based house has tapped Mathilde Castello Branco as its new creative director, WWD has learned.
Previously, Castello Branco, 39, worked at the elbow of Alber Elbaz at Lanvin. The Franco-Brazilian designer started at Azzaro on Thursday and is to unveil her first designs in January for pre-fall 2012.
