Ann Demeulemeester Leaves Namesake Fashion Label


Ann Demeulemeester is leaving her namesake fashion house!

“A new time is coming for both my personal life and the brand Ann Demeulemeester,” the Antwerp-based designer wrote, announcing her decision in a PDF of a handwritten letter. She went on to say that the brand has grown to have “its own identity and legacy that is able to continue growing with me.”

A member of the Antwerp Six, Demeulemeester created her own line in 1985 and now, her pieces are sold in over 30 countries worldwide. Continuing on without her, the company will show their mens and woman’s collections for fall/winter 2014 together on January 27th in Paris, Women’s Wear Daily is reporting.

Any guesses on what’s next for Demeulemeester?
