Haute Off The Presses: Todd Oldham to Join Old Navy

Looks like Todd Oldham isn't a LaZ Boy after-all. Come Oct. 1, the designer will head to Old Navy in the capacity of creative director, according to WWD.

In addition to overseeing the entire line, Oldham plans to develop and launch a line of merchandise under the Todd Oldham name to be sold exclusively at Old Navy stores.

“Todd’s successful career in fashion and design has distinguished him as an innovative creative thinker who also understands how to appeal to a broad audience,” said Dawn Robertson, president, Old Navy. “He understands and appreciates Old Navy’s new positioning and fashion potential and will help elevate and evolve Old Navy.”
