Salehe Bembury Reveals He Will Not Return to Versace in 2021

Salehe Bembury has announced that he will step down from his role as Vice President of Sneakers and Men’s Footwear at Versace. Bembury has gained a massive amount of attention this year with collaborations with New Balance and ANTA and was named Footwear Designer of the Year. This departure was fully intended so Bembury could venture out and reach new opportunities. In a recent interview, Salehe Bembury said, “Donatella Versace offered me a life changing opportunity, and Versace offered me a platform… Often individuals that look like me are not put in the same position. This significant detail was not taken for granted and ultimately I hope that my role is used as a vehicle for progress. I am forever grateful for what was bestowed upon me and extremely proud of what we were able to achieve.”
