Anna Wintour Pissed at Nina Ricci for Firing Theyskens
March 21, 2009 by J.T.
Anna Wintour was shocked to learn that Nina Ricci wasn’t renewing designer Olivier Theyskens‘s contract after his incredible fall 2009 show.
“Last night at the Nina Ricci show, upon being told this would be Olivier Theyskens’ last show for the brand, Anna Wintour’s reaction was, How could you do this to me?’”
We are Surprised too especially after these suspension shoes and Looks we felt in love for.
In her April editor’s letter, here is what she said:
“Olivier Theyskens‘s recent departure from Nina Ricci suggests to me that the vital role of artistic talent has been obscured in the current economic climate. My staff and I were shocked to learn that Theyskens’s contract would not be renewed; and I am very concerned that the business of fashion is undervaluing the most important asset our industry requires: creative visionaries. There’s a reason we continue to see Theyskens’s influence everywhere, from catwalks to the mall. He’ll be back, but fashion must hold its nerve.”
“The mall”, because the mall has more influence on most US citizens than even Vogue! We can now measure Olivier important’s influence.
Influence talking, we hope that Anita’s influence will help Olivier to find a job very soon, or even better, be sponsored for his own brand again.
