Only 24 hours in, and we've got some drama. It seems that Yigal has parted ways with People's Revolution and Kelly Cutrone. From the in-box:
New York City, NY, Friday, February 13, 2009 - Yigal Azrouël Fires People's Revolution
Following the showing of his Fall Winter 2009 Collection, Yigal Azrouël has decided to fire front-of-house PR Company, People's Revolution, for mismanagement.
Having worked together for one year, the designer decided to part ways after feeling poorly represented at his Women's Fall 2009 fashion show which took place on Friday, February 13th at 11am in the Promenade at Bryant Park. With only two days until Azrouël's Fall 2009 Menswear presentation, which will take place in his meatpacking district store on Monday, February 16th from 3pm - 5pm, the company has decided to handle the PR internally.
Oh boy. We're awaiting a statement from Cutrone; more to follow shortly.
Update: Cutrone sends us her response.
It is true People’s Revolution has represented Yigal Azrouel for the past year. It is also true that as a result of our combined efforts during this time, Yigal Azrouel’s star has risen significantly. In fact this season he received a GQ nomination, the Mercedes Benz presents award, and had one of the best shows in career. This comes down to a guest in the front row whom the Yigal team was clearly upset about despite our explanations.
If we are all going to pull ghosts out of the closet on Friday the 13th. It is going to be one spooky haunted city.
So: Who was the guest? Ashley Dupré, we presume. We hear that Cutrone invited Dupré to another show, but Dupré showed up at Yigal. And Kelly, being a good host ... you see where this is going.
See Dupré and the rest of the Yigal Azrouël front row in our slideshow.
