Sarah Jessica Parker

Sarah Jessica ParkerSarah Jessica Parker has reportedly parted ways with Halston Heritage. The actress served as the president and chief creative officer of Halston’s diffusion label since January 2010.

Details are very scant at the moment, but the always reliable Women’s Wear Daily reports that the Sex and the City star is working on terminating her agreement with the label.

Rumors are swirling that Halston is suffering financial difficulties. If that’s so, it’d make sense to trim such a high profile celebrity employee. Something tells me that Ms Parker’s services wouldn’t have come cheaply. It’s been suggested that Halston may be sold again, but at this point it’s all speculation.

If the industry buzz is true it’s strange that Halston hasn’t released a statement to confirm the news. Perhaps it’s waiting for another president to step up before announcing anything officially. Many other brands have recently hired low-key talent, rather than big name designers. No one knew Olivier Rousteing when he stepped up for Balmain, and before she designed Duchess Catherine’s wedding dress Alexander McQueen’s Sarah Burton was a virtual unknown. A similar move would be smart for Halston Heritage if it is indeed struggling financially. It’s a solution that’s frugal with the potential to inject a real freshness into the line.

Are you sorry to see Sarah Jessica Parker leave Halston Heritage?
