Rachel Zoe Drops Out Of NYFW
We’ve heard a lot of talk about designers dropping out of NYFW and quite a few have decided not to show at the tents on Lincoln. News hit this week that yet another of our favorite designers, Rachel Zoe, has dropped out of fashion week. We can’t blame her, though, because the new mom said her newborn son is her priority. We hope to see the mama Zoe come August for the SS14 season. (Fashion Times)
Art Otenberg Passes Away
The fashion world was in shock when we learned that The New York Times fashion critic Cathy Horyn had resigned from her position. The sad truth to the resignation was her husband Art Ortenberg was ill. News hit that Ortenberg, the Liz Clairborne co-founder, had passed away this week. News of Ortenberg’s sudden death has shocked many and our condolences are with Horyn. (Refinery 29)
