Where the runway meets the street

Belgian fashion designer Ann Demeulemeester has announced she will leave her namesake company in a handwritten letter sent by email to news outlets. It’s uncertain whether or not Demeulemeester will be retiring from fashion although she did say, “A new time is coming both for my personal life and the brand ‘Ann Demeulemeester.’ I feel it’s time to separate our paths.” Presumably, Anne Chapelle, whom the designer brought in as a manager in the mid-’90s, will assume Demeulemeester’s position but we’ll be sure to keep you posted as we hear more.
