Less than a day after designer Marco Zanini was reported to be out at Halston, the fashion house recently revived by movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and Jimmy Choo designer Tamara Mellon, Fashion Week Daily is reporting that celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe may also be departing.
"She has no creative control over Halston," said a brand spokesman back in February when Ms. Zoe reportedly failed to appear for Halston’s fall show. "Her main responsibility is as an adviser for red carpet and celebrity styling." Sources at Halston are wondering if she will follow Mr. Zanini out the door.
Georgina Chapman, Mr. Weinstein’s wife and designer for Marchesa, is apparently not taking over the creative role, leaving Ms. Mellon, who, according to unnamed sources, may be taking on a more prominent creative role at Halston.
