Roland Mouret's final collection cancelled!
(sorry if this has been posted already)

i called the sales director of Roland today and they took the unfortunate decision that the collection of AW06 will be cancelled!
it is extremeley emotional. they decided yesterday at 4pm that they will need to cancel all orders they had written in NY and needed to cancel all their showroom appointments as they did with me

we let them know that we will follow him and she should keep us updated on where he goes.
i wish i had the money to support the factory costs (there seemed to a problem from their side!!)
awful awful backers...

uniq,
if i had the time i would also look into it!
saving roland mouret even if it just for this season, until he gets a deal, would be a brilliant idea... he so deserves it

i called. spoke to lorraine.
she is the sales director and i but his collection for our store so the source is reliable.
we did tell her to let us know in case anything changes but she did let us know that it is highly unlikely..

Well the boutique I shop at here...had some news.

I ran in there this afternoon to scoop up a Mouret dress just in case.

The owner told me they made it to the showroom before the cancelled it so next fall will be in limited production. The store I shop at will be getting a few pieces in.

They told me the showroom was just sad. Nobody was there to help. The investors and Mouret weren't there so you couldn't ask any questions....just buy.

So that is that...and they were told be the reps that Mouret and the investors got into a fight and Mouret quit...that is why there won't be a line and he might work at Engurio next...

...so that is that....next fall will be in limited supply!
