On Monday, Moschino SpA announced who was selected to take over as the label's new creative director.

Kansas City-born designer Jeremy Scott has been appointed to the position at the Italian fashion house and will present his first collection for the 30-year-old label during Milan Fashion Week in February next year.

"This appointment respects the DNA of the brand as Jeremy Scott represents not only an eclectic and contemporary communicator but most of all a designer capable of re-interpreting the identity and the essence of Moschino," a spokeswoman for the company told British Vogue.

Scott will be replacing Rossella Jardini, whose long tenure at the house of Moschino has come to an end. The designer has been at the helm of Moschino since the death of its founder, Franco Moschino, in 1994.

"Moschino thanks Rossella Jardini for her enormous contribution in keeping the spirit of Moschino alive and at the forefront of fashion from 1994 to the present day," the statement said.

"Her creativity and tenacity drove the brand on and Rossella Jardini will always remain a crucial part of our history."

The Moschino brand is known for its irreverent fashion statements, and during her time at the house, Jardini has won over fans such as Miley Cyrus and Kourtney Kardashian with her creative clothing.

Scott is also famous for his own attention-demanding attitude toward fashion, making his appointment at Moschino a great marriage of two fashion provocateurs.

The 39-year-old L.A.-based designer will continue to head up his own label, which he launched in 1997, when he takes on this new role at Moschino.

"It's one of the few houses that has humor. It's the same for me. We share an obsession with poking fun at fashion," Scott told Style.com.

"The ironic thing is, during my last year of college, when I was at Pratt, I interned for the Moschino press office. Yeah, it's kind of a fairy-tale story. I was the intern, and now I'm running the company."
