Rachel Roy's Fashion Line Discontinued

[TheYBF] Rachel  Roy was recently hit with news that her parent company Jones Group will discontinue production of the Rachel Roy Collection.

Many of Rachel’s super cute frocks will be disappearing from racks.

Despite celebrating their 10th anniversary and mounting an impressive showing at New York’s Fashion week last month, Jones Group has decided to cease production of the Rachel Roy Collection. A rep for Jones Group said “RRC”, which is sold in high end stores like Nieman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdale’s, is not in line with Jones’s overall strategy.

Rachel showed her Fall/Winter 2014 collection at NY Fashion Week, but it won’t be purchased and distributed….as of right now.

Jones, which has held a 50 percent stake in Rachel Roy’s business since 2008, said it will “continue to support” of her contemporary label Rachel Rachel Roy, which is sold exclusively at Macy’s.  Rachel’s designs have been spotted recently on fab ladies like Gabrielle Union and FLOTUS Michele Obama.

Never fear….designer Rachel Roy is not throwing in the towel yet. She told WWD that she plans to produce the collection somehow herself and is looking for a business partner.   Too bad she can’t turn to cash-strapped ex-husband Damon Dash in her time of need.
