I have to admit that seeing this headline on the NY Times site this morning was a bit saddening. One of our more celebrated designers, Patrick Robinson, who designed for Anne Klein, Giorgio Armani and Perry Ellis, became GAP’s design chief back in 2007. Not only minority fashion heads celebrated but the industry as a whole. Mr. Robinson has enjoyed fashion celebrity because of his acclaimed fashion genius.
Its disheartening to see that the GAP is releasing him from his position due to lagging sales.

We truly wish the best for Mr. Robinson but we already know bigger and better things are in store for this immensely talented designer.
