Alessandra Facchinetti- Gucci, Valentino Lars Nilsson- Bill Blass, Nina Ricci, Gianfranco Ferrer Olivier Theyskens- Rochas, Nina Ricci These are just a few that I can name off the top of my head. What do they have in common? They've all been appointed to multiple fashion houses, but they haven't seemed to be able to stick around for very long. Is there a common denominator, or multiple factors? Due to their artistic talent (maybe even lack there of), or some commercial aspect? Obviously there will be different reasoning for each designer, but I am still curious for responses to this question.
