So the latest and greatest in the moving and shaking world of fashion is an announcement of new partnership between Catherine Malandrino, Elie Tahari and Arthur Levine. No exact details of the partnership have been released but this will definitely spell some relief for the rumours surrounding Malandrino.
After we were all told there would be no SS12 show for Catherine Malandrino the gossip started and wild reports of the brand closing up shop began making the rounds. Nothing unusual there as competitors love to spread untruths! Anyone that knows the brand knows that the world would be a very different place without this gem of a designer! And you’d also know that Catherine Malandrino would go no where without putting up quite the fight first!
So it’s with great pleasure that we hear the news of this great partnership! Elie Tahari is an FFG favourite and we imagine that the partnership will result in a most fruitful future for all parties involved!
Quotes from the parties involved:
“I feel incredibly fortunate to have met such successful and talented people with a shared vision. Elie, Arthur and I will explore the full potential of the Catherine Malandrino brand.”
“We are really excited to be working with Catherine Malandrino. Arthur and I have a long history together, and we see great potential in Catherine’s talent and unique vision. We look forward to taking the brand to the next level across major product categories and international markets.”
“We can provide the resources and infrastructure to take this brand to a new dimension and believe strong consumer awareness and a defined brand identity make the Catherine Malandrino name poised for growth.”
