    nooooooooooooooooooooooo.................................................

    i've always loved her designs even though i don't own anything...the prices are just too high and it's hard to find here...

    i'm hoping they will work it out...sometimes chapter 11 is the best solution...it worked for barney's and bloomingdales...

    That's a shame. I liked her stuff too, although I also didn't own any of it (hmmm, maybe theres a clue to the problem here....).

    I guess everytime WWD publishes an article about the new ROARRRRRING fashion market, they don't include the little guy in their statistics. :rolleyes: :censored: This news upsets me. She's a great designer and I hope she finds her way.

    If this keeps on going all we'll have left to choose between is LV and Gucci. In that case I'll move to Japan where they support talent.

    There's a mildly interesting article in Dazed and C about CDG and a mini interview with Rei. She, at least, does seem to be keeping the "independent" flag flying. She mentioned how her Dover Street store was the "opposite" of the new granite palace Burberry flagship in Japan. She keeps it real man! " : Chose CDG" as I think one of their old ad campaigns went! :clap:

    wishing her good luck in finding a new backer,
    if not, she can always downsize and go indie.

    to be honest she'll get more creative if she continues
    with minimum financial support, backers are a dangerous breed :argg:

    Isn't Vivienne Westwood always known for her financial predicaments?

    I really like Sitbon's menswear.

    its certainly difficult news,I've liked her for a long time, but I choose to think that most times what needs to happen ...happens...and better comes along. These challenges are lessons. Thats my point of view.
