Hallo Pretty birds,
Have you heard the latest mega-news from the fashion world? Ann Demeulemeester is leaving her own brand. She follows in the footsteps of Jil Sander, who announced earlier this month that she was exiting her own brand for the third time.
According to WWD, Ann Demeulemeester stated “A new time is coming for both my personal life and the brand” and she believes the brand will be able to grow without her. This comes in a two-month of fashion musical chairs, which has seen Marc Jacobs being replaced at Louis Vuitton by Nicholas Ghesquière, Jeremy Scott arriving at Moschino as creative director and Christopher Bailey becoming the CEO of Burberry. There are 41 more days left for 2013, lets see what else happens.
Also on the agenda this week, LVMH Möet Hennesy group announced the launch of its Global Fashion Prize. The contest is open to young designers all over the world and has an exceptional jury made up of Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Jacobs, Nicholas Ghesquière, Raf Simmons, Phoebe Philo and Riccardo Tisci. Kenzo designer duo Humberto Leon and Carol Lim will also be joining them to find new labels to have in their Opening Ceremony stores. The initiative, concieved by Delphine Arnault, daughter of Antoine Arnault, founder of the LVMH group, will award talented young designers a 300,000 euro grant and one year of personalized coaching by the LVMH team. What a great opportunity for young talents. If you’re a designer looking to grow your business, apply at LVMH.com.
