End of an Era

Despite the fact that i work and live (and breath life into) the city everyday, it seems i was the last to know that one of Australia’s designer icons ‘Collette Dinnigan’ has respectfully bowed out of the Fashion game.

Siting ‘Family’ as her reason for the sudden exit, Dinnigan will close up successful boutiques in Sydney, Melbourne and London to spend more time focusing on her husband and their 2 children. Dinnigan had apparently been searching for the appropriate manager/ investor for several years to carry on the business but we can only assume that no one made the cut. Designers, such as myself, running their own business in the hopes of imitating the labels success should keep succession and the future of the company in mind from birth.

Unwed women who planned to don a Collette Dinnigan frock on their big day should get in quick to make a purchase before the company’s close early next year. Anyone else should head to her stores for imminent sales with further sales expected as closing date looms.
