    Don't know if this was posted already but it seems the whole 90's trend of hiring Americans to head up European fashion houses is coming to an end.

    Kors to leave Celine

    Michael Kors is to step down as creative director at Celine after the autumn/winter 2003 collection - and possibly earlier, according to US trade newspaper WWD.
    Lawrence Stroll confirmed that Kors would focus on his own label business in future. In January, Stroll and Silas Chou bought 85% of Michael Kors through their company Sportswear Holdings Limited. They have ambitious plans to develop the Kors label.

    Thanks much for the info, sandra...
    heard the rumors but I'm surprised it came down so quickly.

    I wonder if Marc Jacobs will stay at Louis Vuitton for very much longer!

    that would be unlikely, i think, since vuitton is doing great. at least commercially. or i could be wrong. marc makes catchy trends.. he keeps churning out bestsellers - variations of the bags.
