I don't know what happened to Romeo Gigli. Rumors and cancellations. His partnership with Carla Sozzani, his business partner, shredded.
Jil Sander minimal, a dark sensuality, seductive fabrics. Purchased under the Prada umbrella, Ms. Sander left.
Roland Mouret created a dress that sold for more on eBay than in shops. Lost to business partners, unable to use his name.
What happened to Herve Leger could be a fashion school lesson, enacting new laws to protect designers from predatory entanglements still hasn't happened.
John Galliano. His sad story is so well known. His own name lost.
It's only in fashion that this level of abuse exists, perhaps predatory music labels as well.
From the top: Roland Mouret, Jil Sander, John Galliano, Romeo Gigli, Herve Leger.
